Richard Murphy, the author of bestselling book The Joy Of Tax,
I know that Shaxson claimed best seller status for 8k copies of his last book. Something h was, unbelievably, paid £40k to write.
But seriously? Ritchie’s Joy of Tax a best seller? Anyone got the numbers?
Or are we talking about one week in “Amazon’s top ten sellers of not very coherent books on left wing economics” type best seller.
We know damn well it’s not Owen Jones style sales because we would have been told. Heck, we would have been told about 5k sales.
And a Murphanathema:
But you cannot have two currencies in one country
How many currencies do we actually use in the UK? Airmiles, euros, dollars, pounds, LETS, they’re all currencies and you can get someone or other (at howlingly bad exchange rates sometimes, to be sure) to sell you pretty much anything for any of them.
Legal tender…..but I know of places with more than one legal tender.
What does he mean?
