Linda McDowell of the School of Geography and the Environment at the University of Oxford reviews Migrants and their Money: Surviving Financial Exclusion. The book connects global financial markets and global migration flows to local realities by examining the lives of migrants employed by London’s elite as janitors, retail workers and nannies, and the change affected by the financial crisis of 2008. The book deals also with the development of financial exclusion in the UK from the 1980s, detailing growing inequality, the rise of financially excluded groups, and changing patterns of in-migration.
