QuoteOriginally posted by: neuroguyFair enough. Yes its rhetorical. To my mind it might not be good for one's soul or future career to work somewhere with a culture that permits malpractice and dishonesty. that's too idealisticQuote Why frustration? INMHO the value of finance is completely misunderstood by most people and there is a tendency to tar everyone who works in finance with the same brush. And that is fine if you don't care about being popular, it can be just put down to people's ignorance. Banker bashing is popular now... people should take it on the chin. Quote But when supposedly professional people right at the top engage in systematic corruption, people cannot be blamed for taking to the streets. And they still might. people who think that people at the top know everything that goes on in a bank are idiots who have not worked at a bank. I don't particularly like Bob Diamond but I don't think he knew this was happening.Quote Its also frustrating that humanity can figure out the structure of DNA, send people to the moon and produce Beethoven's 9th, but cannot solve basic issues of resource allocation and socio-politcal engineering. Greed is good, no ?
