The authors propose to make us explore the discreet role of financial actors in the real-world regulation of the economic sphere. They raise several simple but essential questions. Why are financial actors the most influential and powerful actors? How are they involved? What are their key features? How do they define rules? And how do they succeed in promoting their regulatory interests?
