Edward Hadas: Negative rates and postmodern money

By Edward Hadas
March 5, 2015

Negative interest rates show finance has gone postmodern. The system has become self-referential and value-free, in a way that might please cultural theorists. That’s supposed to help the real economy run more smoothly. But it’s risky, high-handed and not fair to savers.

Which is the bigger threat to the world’s peace and prosperity – geopolitical conflict or financial disarray? In a more violent world, it is easy to forget the significant danger posed by finance.

My career in the financial jungle

By Edward Hadas
November 6, 2014

I was unceremoniously kicked out of my last job in finance early in 2004. It was a career turning point for me after 24 years as an equity analyst at eight firms – brokers and investment managers – in both the United States and Europe. I took shelter in financial journalism. Much has changed in the money business since then. But reading about the behaviour that has led to a litany of huge fines, I fear that too much remained the same, at least until very recently.
