"The crisis of 2008 showed that global finance requires tough medicine. Banks must be forced to hold bigger reserves. “Weapons of mass destruction” must be defused. The culture of short-term incentives needs to be revised. But demonising bankers will not solve these problems—and may well, if unchecked, bring a lot of ancient ugliness back to life."  

Interesting defense of bankers in the Economist. I agree that demonising "the bankers" is not a solution but this demonising will increase as long as  the financial sector is not being put back at the service of society. And where are the bankers leading that radical transformation?
