Titel: The Gods that Failed
Sub titel: How the Financial Elite Have Gambled Away Our Futures
You have been had. A risk-prone, privatised profit-driven economic model overseen by a largely unaccountable, greedy and arrogant elite has resulted in the worst economic crisis in decades. The over-paid heroes of Wall Street and the City worshiped the gods of globalisation, financialisation and speculation, and during the years of economic growth we, and our government, worshipped them too. But high in the boardrooms of Mount Olympus, the reckless lust of banks for big bonuses and bigger profits led to excesses that have proved unsupportable. The warning signs were ignored - the financial institutions thought they were just too big to fail. But the Gods have failed, and now we're footing the bill. Find out how an unregulated elite were able to run riot with your cash, and find out how to stop it happening again.
