The world of finance has always drawn mixed feelings from me.
On one side, I realize that many of the pleasurable technological breakthroughs that we enjoy today in our lives come from someone with money investing in an innovative and risky idea. My personal experience with the various projects that I was involved me told me that most of these investors made their money by using the stock exchange in one way or another. These people are just like you and me, they shop, live, love, and experience life’s many wonders. I usually find people nice, and finance types are no exception.
On the other side is the institution that lies behind it all. The ruthless world of hardworking, intelligent people who are living and breathing numbers and ratios, giving the impression that the “human factor” simply does not exist. The banking companies sacrificing talented people by overworking them like the slaves of old.
