520    The financial sector is the talk of the global village. 
       This book highlights that, before asserting that the 
       institutions of the financial sector deserve to be 
       regulated, one should consider that these very 
       institutions are themselves the discreet regulators of the
       markets where their activity takes place.|bThe global 
       financial crisis that began in the summer of 2007 has 
       brought the financial industry to centre stage. While most
       current analysis focuses on the way finance can be 
       regulated in the topical context of the economic crisis, 
       this book aims to show how financial activities actually 
       shape and transform the world. Highlighting that the true 
       regulators of the economy are not only regulatory state 
       authorities, the book demonstrates that the financial 
       sphere really does contribute to rule-setting. It argues 
       that actors that seem to be the objects of regulation or 
       intervene only at its fringe are in fact 'discreet 
       regulators' which provide the institutional framework that
       fosters the creation and globalization of markets.  
       Building on a series of case studies, Finance: The 
       Discreet Regulator highlights how public authorities and 
       private actors jointly regulate the real world, with joint
       regulation being dominated by a multiplicity of financial 
       actors, and looks at a variety of key players, who take 
       part in the very heart of the regulatory process.
