Thinkers

Shadow banking is a term that was invented by Paul McCulley, the former chief economist of the giant fund manager PIMCO, in 2007. He was one of the first to identify and analyse the growth of chains of financial transactions in the US that had the economic substance of commercial banking but weren’t regulated, and often weren’t even noticed by regulators. Parts of this system went badly wrong in the financial crisis of 2007-09 and caused enormous damage.
Dr Simon Taylor, University Lecturer in Finance (posted on 20 July 2014)
Successful examples of quasi-monopolies would include Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and for a while Apple and Microsoft. None of these is or was a 100% monopolist, though Microsoft came very close with the dominance of Windows for a while. And none of them has an unassailable position, because technological change makes new disruptive entrants a possibility, which is why so few companies keep their monopoly position.
Dr Simon Taylor, University Lecturer in Finance (posted on 6 July 2014)
Hubris. Over-confidence. Egomania. We all know companies and departments who have become less effective because one individual conflates their own needs with those of the organisation, while holding everyone else in contempt.
Professor Christoph Loch (posted on 1 July 2014)
