This is the story of one of America’s great radicals. A revolutionary, a geek and one of the most important anti-establishment heroes in post-war capitalism. His name is Michael Milken. He’s also financial criminal, Republican and at one time the most sought-after investment banker in the world. The reason I want to tell you Milken’s story is that I think he has given us a blueprint for how we should think about resistance in financialised capitalism.
Sahil Dutta is writing a thesis on the financialisation of the British economy. It’s more fun than it sounds.
