John Kay

From creation to appropriation: How finance escaped the economy.

Economist John Kay explains how the financial sector turned from the economy's servant to its master, who writes government reformers out of their own policies, and why the key to reclaiming economic wellbeing for the majority of people is to refocus the financial sector on meeting the needs of the economy at large.

John is author of the new book Other People's Money: The Real Business of Finance from Public Affairs.
