Taming the Vampire Squid: Take back our banks

December 7, 2010

Now, here’s a thought from the New Economics Foundation.

Journalist Matt Taibbi wrote that a big investment bank is like a giant vampire squid. A new animation from The Great Transition asks what banking is for? And whether vampire squid can ever be tamed?

Concept: With thanks to Matt Taibbi
Script: Andrew Simms, Ruth Potts and Leo Murray
Narration: Andrew Simms
Animation: Leo Murray & Thomas Bristow
Sound: James Harper and Louis Hackett

    Take back OUR banks? Did they ever belong to us in the first place? No. Do we really want them? No. Have they stolen our money? Yep. Do we want that back? Bloody right!
