The author's vision for the capital markets' necessary evolution post credit crunch is perfectly encapsulated in the picture on the book’s cover sleeve of Sir Norman Foster’s large glass dome over the Reichstag’s plenary hall in Berlin:

Transparent, uprising, built on solid foundations with a clear see-through structure offering 360-degree views, free & open to anyone and serving a well-defined function for society - let us take these ideas on board and help rebuilding the market together.

(It also is a reminiscent of the author's roots -  who was born and grew up in Germany.)
