The power of Chinese capitalism, the enigmas of Russian banking, and the laundering of funds for terrorism ? Loretta Napoleoni has burrowed into different financial systems to find just how differently they work.
Her latest book is Maonomics: Why Chinese Communists Make Better Capitalists Than We Do. Her early work on Italy?s terrorist Red Brigade was done at the request of a childhood friend who had joined the group; and she is now following up with an e-book on ISIS, the group who have taken over a chunk of Syria and Iraq.
Loretta is a journalist, lecturer and political economist who divides her time between the US and the UK.
