Summary

The gripping story of the financial revolution known as Big Bang, which transformed international business and changed our world, for fans of Michael Lewis' best-selling The Big Short and Liaquat Ahamed's prizewinning Lords of Finance.

Published to mark the 30th anniversary of the financial revolution known as Big Bang, Crash Bang Wallop tells the gripping story of how the changes introduced in the 1980s in the City of London transformed our world.

Attitudes to money and the way we measure value and status were completely reshaped by Big Bang, and it had an extraordinary impact on politics, on style, on technology, on the class system, on questions of public ownership, and on the geography of London. Perhaps more than anything, Big Bang revolutionised the international markets, as the capital became a testing ground for financial globalisation, with huge repercussions for the global economy.

The definitive insider's account of this critically important moment in modern history, Crash Bang Wallop also explores what's next for global finance as it gets ready to undergo yet another revolution.
