Bankers 'must Swear Oath'

Recommended Posts

My experience of working in this sector tells me that banking attracts a certain type of person who values financial reward and virtually nothing else in their employment. It leads to a very macho, aggressive culture.

Once a few of them get control, the whole management structure is corrupted. I'm not sure how it's possible to recover from that.

Chain of command is rife in the big banks - because the culture is moulded by this personality type. It's kick down, kiss up. Bullying. Your superiors are always right and heaven forbid you criticise them. So I see bad behavior ignored, rewarded and allowed to flourish.

In short - no more bailouts, bang up the cheats. Isn't going to happen.

Bankers 'must swear oath' after scandals, says report


So to fix the banking system we simply ask them to give us their word that they wont do anything bad. What a brilliant idea, problem solved lads.

Would they swear on a "Holy Book, like Wisden's ?

How about:

1) You get zero state support, (and that includes market determined interest rates)

2) If you lose money and/or go bust, tough!

Banking sector sorted overnight.

spot on. Short and sweet. Nothing else required.

Swearing an oath, these crooks ? Don't make me laugh !
