Elites have become more vaguely linked by key ideas, norms and practices. The tenets of neoliberalism and globalisation, loosely defined, have been widely accepted in most British leadership sectors. Ideas and practices do not necessarily bring social cohesion across dissimilar sets of leaders. The basic contradictions of neoliberalism itself are further fragmenting elites. Large corporations, markets and the super-rich depend on states to function; but their crippling of national institutions, in order to free such 'wealth creators', jeopardises the very systems they rely on. So, in adapting and choosing systems that may produce more appropriate leaders, certain principles might be adopted and initiatives taken: transparency, conflicts of interest, checks and balances, self-policing, public information, social mobility, culture and ethics, intermediary professions, and ideas and innovation.
