This chapter presents five simple conclusions that are drawn from the foregoing account of what has happened to affect money, finance and governments since the mid-1980s. The first is that 'finance calls the tune'. The second is that governments of states have less control over their economies and societies than they had ten, twenty or thirty years ago. The third conclusion is concerned with mergers and acquisitions. The fourth is about moral contamination. The fifth conclusion is that there are widening income gaps. The chapter also presents three ways in which old gaps in power and wealth have widened. The first would be the point about rich and poor. Second would be the widening gap between big business and small business. Third, the gap in power and influence between states is also widening. The chapter aims to figure out some broad scenarios, possible directions in which the future might develop.
