THE crisis has taught people a lot about the banking industry and the thought processes of its leaders. These lessons can be distilled into four golden rules.

1. The laws of supply and demand do not apply. When food producers compete to supply a supermarket, the retailer has the luxury of selecting the lowest bidder. But when it comes to investment banking, wages are very high even though the number of applicants is vastly greater than the number of posts. If the same was true of, say, hospital cleaning, wages would be slashed.

Hey Christian, I'm not surprised. I just read an insightful infographic by Firmex called A Career in Investment Banking: Worth the Investment? http://fir.mx/UHbXoJ . It talks about the reality of becoming an investment banker - both the pros and cons, so I can see where they're coming from.
