About the author
Author of The Buddha on Wall Street
Having completed a first degree in economics, and a postgraduate degree in industrial relations, Vaddhaka Linn worked for over twenty years in the UK in trade unionism and adult education, before joining the Triratna Buddhist Community, in which he has lived and worked since 1994. He now divides his time between the UK and Estonia, where he teaches and helps to run a Buddhist centre in the Uus Maailm (New World) district of Tallinn. He is the author (as Ian Linn) of “Application Refused: Employment Vetting by the State” (Civil Liberties Trust 1990) and of “The Case Against the Polygraph” (Society of Civil and Public Servants, 1983). His newest book, “The Buddha on Wall Street: What’s Wrong with Capitalism and What We Can Do about It” is available now from Windhorse Publications.
