Sir Paul Tucker is the author of the forthcoming book ‘Unelected Power: The Quest for Legitimacy in Central Banking and the Regulatory State’ (Princeton University Press, May 2018.) ‘Unelected Power’ examines how central bankers have emerged from the financial crisis as the third great pillar of unelected power alongside the judiciary and the military. It lays out the principles needed to ensure that central bankers, technocrats, regulators, and other agents of the administrative state remain stewards of the common good and do not become overmighty citizens.
