Abstract:

In a near future Tokyo, every human action is intellectual property owned by corporations that charge licensing fees through a computer system called a BodyBank implanted in each citizen. Amon Kenzaki is an upstanding and by-the-book employee of the Global Action Transaction Authority. His job is to capture bankrupt citizens, remove their BodyBank, and banish them to BankDeath Camps where they are forever cut off from the action-transaction economy. Everything is going well for Amon until he is asked to "cash crash" a charismatic politician and model citizen, and soon after is charged for an incredibly expensive action called "jubilee" that he is sure he never performed. To restore balance to his account, Amon must unravel the secret of jubilee, but the costly investigation only drags him closer and closer to the pit of bankruptcy.
