|By Matein Khalid|Dr. Mervyn King broke with tradition by publishing his book “The End of Alchemy: money, banking and the future of the global economy”. After all, retired governors of the Bank of England do not, as a rule, do not write/publish books, let alone write books that lambast the City of London’s culture of greed and hubris. It is no coincidence that Dr. King quotes T.S. Elliot at the outset “Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression gutted Britain’s banking system occurred on Dr. King’s watch, even though light touch regulation and political pressure make the FSA and Downing Street complicit in Britain’s banking crisis.
