casino capitalism
 n.— «This book’s middle chapters succinctly show how “casino capitalism” (a coinage by Susan Strange, one of the left-wing critics of the market that Green deftly cites) led from late 2007 to a “hurricane unprecedented in its savagery.” The storm flattened guilty dealers and blameless workers and home-owners alike.» —“Good Value, By Stephen Green” by Boyd Tonkin Independent (United Kingdom) July 24, 2009.
