Charley has discovered a secret, centuries old, a confidence trick, still practised today. How can she prove it and who will believe her? Will the powerful financial services sector in the UK stop her making it public? How might the country’s vested political and economic interests prevent Charley revealing the illusion, and a secret about the stock market and economic growth? Will the proof in her book be supressed and how will the media and public react?
A most unpopular hypothesis unravels the mystery of our investments and their growth in the stock market, reducing their outcome to a simple conclusion. This novel presents a thought provoking look at how millions of us might be affected by the realisation we were persuaded to believe our long term stock market investments were reasonably secure, and that they might soon evaporate in the enormous downturn facing us all.
