Article: Bankers are the dictators of the West

Robert Fisk, veteran Middle East correspondent for the British "Independent", titled his latest opinion piece, on the "Arab Spring" and Occupy movements, published on the paper's website on 10 December 2011, "Bankers are the dictators of the West".

Excerpt: "[T]hey have for decades bought into a fraudulent democracy: they dutifully vote for political parties - which then hand their democratic mandate and people's power to the banks and the derivative traders and the rating agencies, all three backed up by the slovenly and dishonest coterie of 'experts' from America's top universities and 'think tanks', who maintain the fiction that this is a crisis of globalisation rather than a massive financial con trick foisted on the voters."
