They said it not us

"The big banks are worlds unto themselves and you're a – temporary – citizen. Their logos are your country flag, their motto your national anthem...In essence, an investment banker resembles a magician – his greatest trick is the disappearance and reappearance of money, an illusion he aptly executes with nicely designed and immaculate literature and an arsenal of free-flowing industry jargon intelligible mainly to his own circle. The investment banker contrasts with the magician in his finale – the reappearance seldom matches the original; he lubricates the passage of capital with very sticky fingers."
