Synopsis: From the author of Perfect Sting and Identity Theft Protection comes this strikingly original and sophisticated satire on the complexities of the financial industry. Incomprehensibly convoluted trails of paperwork have allowed banks to build empires on foundations of money that don't actually exist, leading to the world's credit crunch. Crawford, from the inside, paints a picture unlike one we have ever seen: 'Sitting Duck' loans, 'Sophisticated Investors'; a steady flow of industry jargon makes Contaging as authentic as it is grotesquely farcical. Surging forward with the audacity echoed by the very industry it parodies, Crawford's surreal tale is populated with a weird and whacky collection of monstrously venal and amoral characters. It is an indictment of the lunacy embodied in allowing the world's most avaricious people to have so much power over the global economy. And it has the flavour of real life. Enter a world where the complexities of financial machinations are all part of the joke. See the financial industry as you've never seen it before. You may not like what you see, but you'll enjoy the ride.

About the Author: Crawford is a British Canadian advocate for a 'Responsible Lending Act'. He draws on experience contributing to Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin's 'Confronting Canada's Deficit Crisis Committee'and Wall Street Journal's 'Future of Finance Initiative' recommendations as reviewed by UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Contaging is a sequel to his acclaimed 'Perfect Sting' and 'Identity Theft Protection'. Crawford presented his 'Case for Banking Reform' to the White House where he proposed a simple 'Reverse Onus Rule' that Canadian Minister of Finance, James Flaherty, promised he would table for G20 debate that lenders must prove identity validation and fi nancial due diligence before transacting loans to collect.
