Lord Adair Turner is head of the UK’s Financial Services Authority, the body in charge of regulating the banks and other financial institutions. Some weeks ago, he was interviewed by Prospect magazine, a small mouthpiece of the Blairite wing of New Labour.  In that interview, Lord Turner blurted out a telling truth about finance capital that its proponents did not want to hear.
