The nationalisation of the banking system

Watching the rapid and widespread expansion of the State into the banking sector in so many countries is simply astounding. Free market countries including Iceland, the Netherlands and Britain have all nationalised banks, with other countries propping up financial companies via direct investment, loans or guarantees.

This is going to put a huge strain on national finances and will reshape the financial landscape for ever.

Readers of Marx will be forgiven for assuming policy makers have been followers of his.
