In London, a backlash builds against banks, by Landon Thomas Jr.

“”There was none of this frantic trading and multimillion payoffs,” said George Blakey, who worked as a stockbroker in the City from 1966 to 1990 and has recently written a history of the London stock market. “The function of a stock market was to raise capital for industry. But then our old companies were taken over by these big pushy banks and it all became a crazy capitalist casino.””
