At the height of the 1990s boom, Jack Grubman, one of the most successful analysts in Wall Street proclaimed ‘what used to be conflicts of interest are now synergies’. This myopia contributed dramatically to the elevation of a culture in which greed was deified, oversight denigrated and misfeasance justified. Since the fall of the markets and the implosion of confidence in the American corporate business model, one man has proved instrumental in deconstructing the rhetoric of the 1990s: Eliot Spitzer, the combative Attorney General of New York. In the process, his innovative application of state law has reconfigured the governance of Wall Street. Over the past three years the pursuit of transparency and accountability in the structure of the markets has propelled Spitzer to the forefront of regulatory policy. His investigations into tainted analyst research, the mutual funds industry, the governance of the New York Stock Exchange and the insurance industry have focused attention not just on corrupted individuals but also the complicity of the financial structure itself. Spitzer exploited the inherent conflicts of interest to the full, forcing regulators to adopt a much more proactive approach and creating a national platform for his own wider political ambitions. Now holding the Democratic nomination for the Governorship of New York, Spitzer has begun a path for higher national office. This groundbreaking book features exclusive access with many of the key actors in these changes to the governance of Wall Street. It examines how Eliot Spitzer exploited gaps in the regulatory framework to capture the corporate reform agenda and explores the implications of his actions on policy formation and recalibration. Key incidents include: changing the terms of reference governing analyst research; the defenestration of Dick Grasso’s tenure over the NYSE (which is now being heard in state court in New York); and the battles for control between the former Chairman of the Securities Exchange Commission, Harvey Pitt, and Spitzer. The book details not only the contested, contingent and interdependent connections between the American political and financial systems but reveals how Spitzer’s manipulation of those connections have proved instrumental in enhancing his own wider political ambitions.

The politics of business have become the business of politics.Across the world the lesson is clear: just as too much governmentalinterference leads to dysfunctional economies, left to its owndevices the market is incapable of adequate self-regulation.The corporate malfeasance crisis in the United States hastransformed global perceptions about the efficacy of regulatorystructures in combating corrupt practices in private and publicsectors. The design of effective corporate governance structuresdepends not just on internal factors but also on theinter-relationship between various actors that constitute widergovernance: politicians, lobbyists, corporations andregulators.A Corrupted State: Wall Street on Trial breaks new ground bydeconstructing the systemic flaws inherent in the model itself. Itreveals that the 'rotten apple' theory, positing the problems incorporate America as merely the result of deviancy by an individualor a single firm, is an intellectual deceit not supported by thefacts.
