Charles Dickens wrote a few times about greedy bankers, and how their greed affected friends, family and the local community. A bit like what we have/are experiencing with our present day bankers. The only difference between then and now is there were a few bankers back then that did put money back into the local community. If a few took a leaf from their books then maybe they wouldn't be villainised quite so much. Dont get me wrong, I believe that people should be able to make as much money as they can, but not at the expense of the local community. There are a few companies (large and small) that have made it big from the .com era, and have given back both locally and globally. Its a shame that some of the older companies haven't done so yet.
