    If you wanted to get into that debate though, I'd ask: who do you blame for a wrecked house, the kids or the adults who vied to provide them with the cheap extra-strength cider they couldn't handle before running away?
    But I suppose you're all for democracy. It's a limp argument.

      Top of the range trading is going to be double that. Don't be silly.

      Agree, although I have read up on the McDonald's wage and it doesn't some to be fully accurate in most cases.

      I hated the bailouts. I would have been absolutely minted like crazy if they didn't happen.
      If there were no bailouts, how many of your counterparties would have paid up?

      I think the basic gist of this thread is...

      Mahoosive salaries are available to UCL/LSE/Oxbridge graduates

      BUT

      Be prepared to sign your life and soul away to the job...

      horrible reasoning skills.

      Larger than average salaries are available to IB FO grads. Not like someone from Oxbridge gets a higher base in an IB.

        Even if you were trading with central banks, pretty sure your employer would have either made losses so deep they couldn't pay you a bonus or realized the financial system was ****ed and that there was no way you would ever be able to trade the same again and not paid you your bonus.

        You can't seriously be saying you would have made more money without the "bailouts"

          I'm pretty sure I would have made at least ten times more without them. Especially in March 2009 when Citi was about to pop.

          I don't usually neg, but kind of tempted now... :p:

          no grammar nazis like yourself can solve world spelling problems but making money without any produce or benefit to society is a far more complex problem

          What on earth are you talking about? Try going a day not using anything that capitalism has created. Have fun.
