    The Psycho-Yuppies:

    This profile is under construction, but here's a brief summary from the blog:

    A year or so, ago, a lot of liberal media commentators claimed that the 2008 crash would end the period of corporate greed, and bring in a new, more socially-aware age with a respect for a stronger Government.

    A year in, it seems possible that quite the opposite will happen, as a young generation of business people and financiers looks at the mess, and the weakness of the Government and concludes they might as well be even more self-serving and ruthless. Add to this some nostalgia for the 1980s and the Gordon Gekko ethic as seen in the Spectator, and the increasing celebration of professional business-bastard on TV (Peter Jones, Alan Sugar, Gordon Ramsay) and the alleged growth of libertarian ideas among young conservative MPs, and you have the right conditions for a growth in psycho-yuppies  like Ben "I had a place at Sandhurst" Taylor from this year's The Apprentice.
