    I wouldn't get my hopes up about investment banking if I were you, son.
    especially if he doesn't have work experience to add to his needed superb grades

    bankers are over rated anyway - they caused the economic crisis and they're unpopular now, even if they are rich. No one likes them. They're ********s.

    P.S. OP - that is the BEST way to choose a career - see how many hot women in the profession - not many in banking haha, try marketting - lot of fitties in that field! Or work in HR for a modelling agency or something

    Or the rating agencies that rating collatorized debt obligations AAA ratings......that they knew were going to default down the line......this is where the buck lies, the banks were just doing what they are there for - to make money - they acting within their own rights.

    hahaha this is mad i agree! politicians lowering interest rates was a measure taken globally, AFTER the economics crisis - they did it to disincentive saving and get people spending!(basic economics) and was also used to make imports more expensive therefore making the consumer turn to Nationally produced products and also getting more money from our exports. this improves the balance of trade on current account and also theoretically should improve GDP growth, however it was not very successful lowering the interest rates did not get people spending - due to consumer confidence being so low and with unemployment soaring people were left with very little disposable income.
