About

This site was set up by Nicholas Shaxson to support his new book, The Finance Curse, first published in the UK in October 2018. Shaxson is a journalist with 25 years’ experience. He is author of Treasure Islands, a book about tax havens, and Poisoned Wells, a book about oil in Africa. He has written for many publications including Vanity Fair, the Financial Times, The Economist, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and Foreign Affairs. He currently lives in Berlin, Germany.

The Finance Curse

The finance curse concept was first developed by John Christensen and Nicholas Shaxson.  In 2013 we published an initial report laying out the basic idea, and followed this in 2016 with our first academic paper, in partnership with Duncan Wigan of the Copenhagen Business School, in the The British Journal of Politics and International Relations.

Now it has become a major new book, published by Penguin Random House, which has received widespread praise. An edition focusing on the United States will be published in 2019.

A range of blogs and articles have already been published on the subject of the finance curse, some hosted by the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI) at Sheffield University in the UK, and some by the Tax Justice Network.

An academic paper on the Finance Curse and the UK was published in October 2018, alongside the book.

    After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts
