Behaviour and Ethics, or Financialization?
This chapter expands on the two explanations for bank culture. Firstly, it explores the idea that culture is determined by financial and non-financial incentives, and values. Secondly, the chapter explores the financialization of Anglo-America. It argues that financialization stemmed from a crisis of accumulation in the post-war economy, but came to reshape a full range of financial and non-financial corporate activities. It explains though that financialization breeds instability and inequality, and that Anglo-American banks exploit and exacerbate these conditions. This is the argument that will be developed more fully in coming chapters, in order to understand the more significant determinants of ‘bad’ bank culture.
