Investment bankers are the real Masters of the Universe, not politicians, armies or even countries. In economic powerhouse Germany, a top banker gives a disturbing insider’s account of his emotions, motivations and predictions. Revealing a parallel universe of extreme income and merciless pressure.
A system disconnecting bankers from the outside world, unable to reflect about their work.
