The global financial crisis took almost everyone by surprise and even now new problems keep appearing and solutions continue to be elusive. In the original version of Traders, Guns and Money, Satyajit Das provided a highly prescient insight into the structure and risk of the world financial system exposing the problems that are becoming readily apparent. In a 2006 speech – The Coming Credit Crash – Das argued that: 'an informed analysis … shows that risk is not better spread but more leveraged and (arguably) more concentrated…. This does not improve the overall stability and security of the financial system but exposes it to increased risk of a 'crash'.
Satyajit Das is an internationally respected expert in finance with over 30 years' experience. He has worked for the 'sell side' (Citicorp Investment Bank and Merrill Lynch), the 'buy side' (as Treasurer of the TNT Group), and as a consultant advising banks, investors, corporations, and central banks worldwide. Das was selected as one of the 50 most influential financial thinkers in the world by Bloomberg in 2014.
