Thank you to Jame Diasio founder of DigFin Group for his support of my book Cashless, calling it a “must-read” in his glowing review!
From the review:
“Richard Turrin wants you to know that you already live in the shadow of China’ fintech primacy. The West’s Big Tech companies, banks, and governments may not know it yet, because China’s capital markets are not open and its digital currency project still in test mode. He sees it as a harbinger.”
My favorite lines:
His chapters on CBDC design and the specifics (including the murky bits) of China’s version, are especially helpful.
Turrin delivers clear arguments on an enormous topic, which is no easy feat.
Turrin does an expert job of explaining why we should not be too hung up on the differences [between the West and China]. The fundamental lessons of China’s fintech revolution are not as self-contained as it sometimes appears.
DigFin highly recommends this book.
