Economics textbooks teach a “mythological” story about what banks do, claims former bank regulator Lord Adair Turner (Full transcript)

Turner Toronto

Lord Adair Turner, who was the chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority from 2008-2013, gave a brief but hard-hitting speech last week, where he claimed that university textbooks were teaching a 'mythological' story about what banks do. Speaking on a panel at the INET "Human After All" conference in Toronto, he made a number of strong points:
