Much is being written about fintech; little about how it may transform our lives. Based on new research, Laboure and Deffrennes explain how fintech will create new possibilities for people in advanced and low-income countries alike.—Mervyn King, former Governor of the Bank of England

Laboure and Deffrennes highlight the growing importance of financial inclusion and technology. With a wealth of data and case studies, this book demystifies fintech and explains its role in democratizing finance.—Christian Sewing, CEO of Deutsche Bank

Financial services are to the economy what the nervous system is to the human body. Fintech is profoundly changing our economy and our lives. This important book is necessary reading for anyone who cares about the future of our economy or our society.—Lawrence H. Summers, Charles W. Eliot Professor and President Emeritus, Harvard University

A panoramic view of the rapidly changing world of digital finance and money, Democratizing Finance spans a remarkable range of issues with clarity and depth, and provides an excellent primer on the social and economic aspects of rapidly-evolving fintech.—Kenneth Rogoff, Harvard University
