Bankers bonuses

This work is my response to a public debate at St Paul’s Cathedral (London) where the question was “Ethics and the role morality should play in the Marketplace”.

One quote from the debate, came from Lord Griffiths, the Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs: “We have to tolerate the inequality as a way to achieve greater prosperity and opportunity for all” and this mindset was my main motivator for the project.

I wanted to explore further and enlarge the debate through this project. There’s been lots of news and discussion on the subject, so I’ve had plenty of source material to work with. My initial idea was to explain the subject of bankers bonuses and bailouts to the general public – in a fun, informative accessible way.
