What's the courting among the economic system and politics? In a democratic procedure, what sort of regulate should still elected governments have over the monetary markets? What guidelines could be carried out to manage them? what's the function performed through diverse elites--financial, technocratic, and political--in the operation and law of the economy? And what position should still electorate, traders, and savers play? those are many of the questions addressed during this difficult research of the actual positive aspects of the modern capitalist economic system in Britain, america, and Western Europe.

Collectively, we denote this technocratic subgroup the ‘econocracy’, following the introduction of the term by Peter Self (1976), because they had both a major role in the governance of ﬁnance and mainstream academic backgrounds in economics. But there are many other ways to begin a report or a book on the ﬁnancial crisis and most of them can be illustrated through the various British responses to crisis that followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. The most serious ofﬁcial response was the Turner Review, produced in 2009 by the chair of the UK’s soon to be defunct Financial Services Authority (FSA) at the request of Treasury.
And such beginnings matter because they are often difﬁcult to escape. Thus, New Labour’s July 2009 Treasury White Paper immediately undermined the case for radical reform of ﬁnance when its opening chapter stressed ‘the importance of ﬁnancial services and markets to the UK economy, and the pre-eminence of the UK as a global ﬁnancial’ (HM Treasury 2009a) rather than analysing the causes of crisis. The House of Commons Treasury Select Committee had more radical intent but failed to deliver a synthetic analysis which could sustain radical prescriptions because it never really recovered from an initial committee decision to produce several different reports on aspects of the crisis.
The problem the technocrats faced was to understand the complex and multidimensional nature of what was going on in the area of the undisclosed under the rubric of ﬁnancial innovation. Here, we develop four key concepts which allow us to think divergently in the front half of the book about the drivers and consequences of the antisocial structures and behaviours in ﬁnance. First, the concept of business model explains how and why ﬁnancial innovation was so powerful in the stock market-quoted, corporate banking sector where proﬁts were volume-based in a joint venture, proﬁt-sharing arrangement between shareholders and senior investment bankers under the compensation (comp) ratio system (Augar 2005).
