The only "destabilizing influence" I remember was forcing Britain out of the crazy Exchange Rate Mechanism, for which many British businesspeople were extremely grateful. It was killing the British economy, and he saved it; that it destabilized the government's plans is irrelevant.

Of course these days he's arguing for more stupid government tricks, whether that's so he can make lots of money or because he really thinks they might work, I don't know.
