Recensie s This book offers a brilliant discussion of the relationship between finance and politics and it should be on the reading list of any economist. It suggests that this was a period of unprecedented hubris on the part of the political and economic elites, and that the resulting crisis was not an accident, not a disaster, not a catastrophe, nor a fiasco, but a genuine political debacle. The book argues that elites failed to appreciate the financial system as a bricolage of excess, disconnects, anomalies, and contradictions, with the result that this ramshackle assemblage collapsed around them and us with devastating consequences.
Angry and compelling, this book demands to be read as a clear-headed alternative account of the run up to this critical period and its aftermath. Its focus on elite power control of central banking and regulation is a refreshing alternative to macro-economic narratives. This is essential and disturbing reading for anybody concerned about the relationship between financial power and democracy.
This is a book which really ought to be read not only by academics but also by industry representatives and policy makers in order to make sure that the kind of hubris displayed in the early s, born out of a curious mixture of elite miscalculation and misbegotten premises, never again becomes an article of faith.
Absolutely essential reading for anyone wanting to understand how Britain's financial sector got out of control This engaging book produced by a team of researchers associated with the University of Manchesters Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change presents an impressive interdisciplinary analysis of the origins of the crisis and the prospects of finance reform.

These are some of the questions addressed in this challenging analysis of the particular features of the contemporary capitalist economy in Britain, the USA, and Western Europe. The authors argue that the causes of the financial crisis lay in the bricolage and innovation in financial markets, resulting in long chains and circuits of transactions and instruments that enabled bankers to earn fees, but which did not sufficiently take into account system risk, uncertainty, and unintended consequences. In the wake of the crisis, the authors argue that social scientists, governments, and citizens need to re-engage with the political dimensions of financial markets.
This book offers a controversial and accessible exploration of the disorders of our financial capitalism and its justifications. With an innovative emphasis on the economically 'undisclosed' and the political 'mystifying', it combines technical understanding of finance, cultural analysis, and a political account of interests and institutions.

The Public? The book's premise is that the 'global financial crisis' should be understood as an "elite debacle" Some interesting insights, superficially developed; too politically correct The aim of this book is to convince its readers elites? The book's premise is that the 'global financial crisis' should be understood as an "elite debacle". This is at the same time quite right, and very wrong.
