Example text

It is equally obvious, however, that politicians continue to believe in this notion. Turning from public finance to the finances of political parties themselves, the chapter then considers the consequences of the rising cost of election campaigns. Does it matter that the key institutions of the democratic process can no longer rely on the revenue generated by mass memberships, and are therefore increasingly dependent on donations from wealthy individuals or taxpayers? And is the phenomenon of corruption—"sleaze"—explicable in economic rather than moral terms?

N o theory has adequately described this phenomenon, not least because individuals are plainly capable of sustaining multiple, overlap­ ping identities; and of tolerating the proximity of quite different groups, and indeed co-operating with them. Only occasionally, and for reasons that seem historically specific, are people willing to accept an exclusive group identity. Only sometimes—but often enough—does the competition between groups descend into violence. The guiding assumption of The Cash Nexus is that these conflicting impulses—call them, for the sake of simplicity, sex, violence and power—are individually or together capable of over-riding money, the economic motive.

In other words, while Marx­ ism may have suffered a setback in 1 9 8 9 , economic determinism did not. All that has happened is that the signs have been reversed: it was the stagnation of the planned economy that doomed the Soviet system, whereas the success of the capitalist economy ensured the triumph of democracy. For Gorbachev's failure, as for Clinton's success,- it was the economy, stupid. 24 25 26 THE CASH NEXUS UNTIED But was it the economy? In the chapters that follow, I have set out to re­ examine the link—the nexus, in Carlyle's phrase—between economics and politics, in the aftermath not only of the failure of socialism but also the apparent triumph of the Anglo-American model of capitalism.
