Another non-environmental wonder

More credence for the "no-one is in the driver's seat" theory of why banks are so dysfunctional - and even better, from another actual banker (via the Guardian):

"We rely upon self-declaration, upon what is presented to us by a bank's internal management. But often they don't know what's going on, because banks today are so vast and hugely complex. I don't think I have ever been deliberately lied to – though obviously I might not know about it. The real threat is not a bank's management hiding things from us: it's the management not knowing themselves what the risks are, either because nobody realises it or because some people are keeping it from their bosses."
