Satyajit Das

Bio
Satyajit Das writes the Das Capital Column in The Independent. He has worked in financial markets for over 35 years, as a banker, a corporate treasurer and now as a consultant. His latest book is 'A Banquet of Consequence' (due to be published in February 2016). It will be titled 'The Age of Stagnation' in the US and India to increase confusion and avoid it being mistaken for a cookbook. He is also the author of 'Traders Guns and Money', 'Extreme Money' and in the distant past (which he repudiates) a number of reference books on derivatives and risk-management. He became a financier because he wasn't good enough to be a professional cricketer and no one offered him a job as a cricket commentator or allowed him to pursue his other passion- wildlife (he is the co-author with Jade Novakovic of 'In Search of The Pangolin: The Accidental Eco-Tourist'). He lives in Sydney, Australia.
