Financial Citizenship

Experts, Publics, and the Politics of Central Banking

Annelise Riles

Experts – central bankers, regulators, market insiders, and their academic supporters – are a special community, a cultural group apart from many of the communities that make up the public at large. When the gulf between the culture of those who govern and the cultures of the governed becomes unmanageable, the result is a legitimacy crisis. This book is call to action for all of us – experts and publics alike – to address this legitimacy crisis head on, for our economies and our democracies.
