Example text

Bernanke’s 2007 encomium for financial innovation is quoted at the beginning of this chapter but similar statements (with only minimal variation for local audiences) could have been cut from, or pasted into, any number of speeches by central bankers or authoritative reports from international agencies. Here, for example, are two quotations, one from Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England speaking in 2007, and the other from the semi-annual IMF Global Financial Stability Report of April 2006.

For Adrian Blundell-Wignall (2007: 2) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), ‘subprime lending is a new innovation . . the big benefit is that people who previously could not dream of owning a home share in the benefits of financial innovation’. These positive verdicts on financial innovation were complacent rather than foolish because position statements in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) report of April 2006, like the Bernanke lecture of May 2007, often registered qualifications and caveats about how financial innovation was not entirely or risklessly beneficial.

Instead, they offer broad-brush, ‘commonsense’ accounts in a vernacular, easily comprehensible to politicians and the lay public, and in a context where central bankers and finance regulators are managers engaged not only in making decisions but also in justifying actions. One of the characteristics that distinguish elite econocrats like Bernanke is their commitment to this ambiguous kind of translation, whereby the technical language of economic ‘science’ becomes (or maybe authorizes) vernacular stories about markets in a language accessible to those without algebraic competence or an understanding of dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models of the economy.
