It seems that conservative and liberal pundits alike all use Investment Bankers as a symbol of greed and corruption to scapegoat for all of the countries woes. Did this all start after the housing crisis or has there always been hostility towards bankers?
I commonly hear journalists spout the ignorance that bankers add nothing to the economy and it is frustrating because I don't think they realize all of the work that bankers put in to allow American businesses to finance and grow their operations. Even on a smaller level, do these people realize that they would not be able to finance their cars and homes if it were not for the retail/consumer arm of big banks?
