Preview

This chapter examines what can be said about the new developments in financial politics since 1995. It considers the case of the Financial Diet of 1998, an extraordinary legislative session held to deal with the bad debt problem in banking. It is shown that the new developments observed in the case of the Big Bang represent a more general trend in financial politics, evident since 1995. This trend is one in which the public matters more than ever in the policymaking process.
