Summary The financial crisis of 2008 was caused by greedy, unscrupulous bankers. Luckily, the Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve were our firefighters. These central banks rescued us from the brink of collapse and resuscitated our economies. Except that isn't the whole story. A simplistic narrative, it glosses over one inconvenient truth #x96; it was the firefighters who started the fire. Experienced asset management adviser Anjum Hoda contends that our central banks have been playing a deceitful game for decades. They've been using interest rates to stimulate the value of assets so that we would.
