Few people are more reviled by everyday people than bankers, and rightfully so.
They hide usury in fine print and send your neighbors to evict you in their stead.
They distort and manipulate markets for their own gains, from LIBOR, to the gold fix, to silver prices, to exchange rates, and on and on.
Then, with the corruption of a wink and a nod, they use regulatory capture to remove all risk and collect cushy bailouts while our jobs disappear, wages effectively shrink, and neighborhoods fall into squalor.
