Episode 1: Banks on Fire

This is a light-hearted attempt to explain the issue of insufficient capital requirements for the banking sector. The text is purely illustrative. For a more complete analysis, see Finance Watch’s related publications below.

For the Crisis Anniversary, Finance Watch launches a series of short animated movies. Each episode will cover an aspect of the “state of finance”, #10yearsOn from the crisis. As we will see, there is nothing to celebrate for citizens.

Coming soon: Episode 2 – Making Finance Great Again
