Bank Culture for Dummies

Interesting characters populate this film which is set up as an instructional docudrama but never quite manages to simplify the subject enough for complete novices. It is definitely entertaining but would bore the pants off anyone who doesn't care about how big banking works. In simple terms they make squillions while Joe Public pays the price. We all know it. The mortgage market is run like a Ponzi scheme. Is anyone really surprised?
