Why bail-outs fail and people power will succeed ‘Lipstick on a Pig: Why Bail-outs Fail and People Power Will Succeed’ is the first of a new series of books by Zopa co-founder Simon Deane-Johns (aka ‘The Pragmatist’) that take a subversive and irreverent look at how the relationship between society and its institutions is changing, fundamentally and forever - how we, as individuals, are personalising the one-size-fits-all existence traditionally offered by our institutions; and what the impact of this trend will be on our financial system, politics, unions, the church and beyond.
Last week I headed out to San Francisco for Finovate Spring . Finovate is my favourite conference of the year for a few reasons.

The goal of this visibility is to gain customers, venture capital funding, partnerships and media coverage.
