Money is a contract of faith
It's only value is your faith, and so the concept of faith becomes critical in monetary systems.
Most of your loans, debt, and investments, are placed into a private pool of money, sliced up into tranches, and bought and sold on the free market to competitive buyers. This means that you have no one to turn to if things go wrong, and while there is usually an ombudsman or a central authority, processing your tiny voice can take months, and by now, well, your money is probably owned by someone else.
You can phone your bank about your money problems, but unless you have a lot of money, ie you have money to buy serious legal power, your complaints will fall on mostly deaf ears.
But that's the money game.
You choose to enter the game, you play by the rules, rules that you had no part in writing. The people who profit most from the system are the ones who make the rules. Isn't that a coincidence?
Now, in DarkPool, our AntiHero finds himself on the side of the Usurars, the money-lenders, and money-grabbers. There would be absolutely nothing in the world that could sway him from this path, except, he discovers, there are people like him trying to topple him.
Oh my God, do things go wrong, and now he has to dig himself out of a deep hole. Let's say his faith in the system is broken.
DarkPool is a financial thriller for the layman. You're going to walk away from the book knowing a lot more about the brokers and money-lenders than when you went in, without realising it.
You should shell out a few coins and read it on Kindle, or in Print
