Report Why Do People Blame The Bankers? in House prices and the economy Posted February 11, 2009 This argument (posted apparently by Investment Bankers) that the only thing that matter in businesses in the board room is how much money you can make is absolute and utter nonsense. It is a lie.Talk to Stephen Green at HSBC, talk to the CEO at Nationwide, or any other business in just about any other industry. It comes directly to the nub of the issue. That it is within the psyche and culture of Investment Bankers that is the case everywhere else. What is interesting about some of the people who post these views, and who appear to be withing the banking system in some shape or form is the complete and utter denial of the world outside of their own. It is no wonder at all then that taxpayers have been forced to loan $trillions to bail out these people. Today has been the most interesting on here for a long time because it has exposed these arguments as being risible. If they truly believe what they are saying then there is no hope whatsoever for banking as it has been structured because this denial will only lead to the same people trying to make as much money as possible the next time, with what appears to be a pathological hatred to their fellow man. It is fraud, theft and psychopathy on an institutional scale. Love this post.
