Rajan and Zingales demonstrate that free and open financial markets inspire human ingenuity, make nations competitive, and spread prosperity. In the wake of recent business scandals, financial markets are often thought of as parasitic institutions that feed off the blood, sweat, and tears of human endeavour. Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists shows that such markets in fact supply the fuel of a vital economy.

And they are the only effective antidote to counteract the manipulations of elite groups that keep a tight grip on capital and restrict the economic development of nations and the entrepreneurial success of individuals. "Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists will dismay both titans of industry and their foes across the barricades, the anti-globalisation left that sees little in capitalism worth saving. It's written for the rest of us - all those who simply want a fair chance to prosper." (Business Week).

"Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists is a highly original study of the ways in which vested interests have sought throughout history to protect their wealth and power by rigging the market structure, even subverting free markets entirely when it suits them". (Washington Post).
