At the height of the 1990s boom, Jack Grubman, one of the most successful analysts in Wall Street proclaimed ‘what used to be conflicts of interest are now synergies? This myopia contributed dramatically to the elevation of a culture in which greed was deified, oversight denigrated and misfeasance justified. Since the fall of the markets and the implosion of confidence in the American corporate business model, one man has proved instrumental in deconstructing the rhetoric of the 1990s: Eliot Spitzer, the combative Attorney General of New York. In the process, his innovative application of state law has reconfigured the governance of Wall Street.
Over the past three years the pursuit of transparency and accountability in the structure of the markets has propelled Spitzer to the forefront of regulatory policy. His investigations into tainted analyst research, the mutual funds industry, the governance of the New York Stock Exchange and the insurance industry have focused attention not just on corrupted individuals but also the complicity of the financial structure itself. Spitzer exploited the inherent conflicts of interest to the full, forcing regulators to adopt a much more proactive approach and creating a national platform for his own wider political ambitions. Now holding the Democratic nomination for the Governorship of New York, Spitzer has begun a path for higher national office.
This groundbreaking book features exclusive access with many of the key actors in these changes to the governance of Wall Street. It examines how Eliot Spitzer exploited gaps in the regulatory framework to capture the corporate reform agenda and explores the implications of his actions on policy formation and recalibration.
Key incidents include: changing the terms of reference governing analyst research; the defenestration of Dick Grasso’s tenure over the NYSE (which is now being heard in state court in New York); and the battles for control between the former Chairman of the Securities Exchange Commission, Harvey Pitt, and Spitzer.
The book details not only the contested, contingent and interdependent connections between the American political and financial systems but reveals how Spitzer’s manipulation of those connections have proved instrumental in enhancing his own wider political ambitions.
From the Inside Flap
"A timely and very readable account of key regulatory responses to the scandals of the Enron era that will have value for academics, regulators and business."
—Doreen McBarnet, Professor of Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford
"This book is a masterful dissection of the many aspects ?political, legal, regulatory, and economic ?of failure, fraud, and enforcement in financial markets. It provides a much needed reminder of the complex realities that lie beneath simple assumptions of much economic analysis. It leaves notions of market efficiency and competition in need of radical rethinking. While drawing on vast amounts of research from several disciplines, it offers a gripping narrative."
—John Driffill, School of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics, Birkbeck College
"O'Brien combines the analytic insights of a scholar with the sharp eye of an investigative journalist to present a critical yet measured picture of today's complex regime of financial market regulation. Whether you are an academic, regulator or corporate officer, you can’t help but be impressed with the comprehensive synthesis reflected in this incisive book. Brilliantly done."
—Melvin J Dubnick, Professor and MPA Director, Department of Political Science, University of New Hampshire |
