The ideology of modern finance tears capitalism in two, and then abandons the half beyond the ken of bureaucrats and professors who train them. Capitalism demands free markets because it needs free minds. Modern investment theory says efficient markets can moot the mind entirely. The entrepreneur cherishes freedom including the freedom to fail. The bureaucrat of capital dreams of a world in which failure is impossible. Confronted with the demons of uncertainty, the entrepreneur wrestles them till dawn. The bureaucrat of capital crafts idols of ignorance and worships in the dark.
