QotD: Bankers, Marx’s dream workers

Filed under: Economics, Humour, Quotations — Tags: , , — Nicholas @ 09:54

In a way bankers are Marx’s dream, it’s the workers getting the fruits of their labours. It’s funny that the left is usually angry at shareholders, for taking money out of companies and thereby bringing down workers’ salaries. Yet with the banks they want shareholders to press the banks to do exactly that, and curb pay.
