"This collection of essays is insightful as it is fascinating and if heeded will help lead to better regulation by UK legislators. This enlightening overview of the current state of Open Banking does not represent the end of the journey for consumer oriented banking, but it does represent a paradigm shift in democratising finance, shifting power to ordinary consumers."
