Swimming with Sharks

Inside the World of the Bankers

´It´s not the people who are bad, it´s the culture.´

´Friends turned on me, on my wife.´

´This job involves in some part selling your soul for a good salary.´

´You´re sitting there, and you may have just made the decision that destroyed the world.´

Winner of the NS Public Prize for Book of the Year 2015

Joris Luyendijk, an investigative journalist, knew almost nothing about banking until he was assigned to investigate the financial sector. Over two years he spoke to more than 200 people - from the competitive investment bankers and elite hedge fund managers to downtrodden back office staff and those made redundant in regular ´culls´. They opened up about what they actually do, about the toxic hiring and firing culture and about the overwhelming technological and mathematical opacity of their work. They admitted that in the crash of 2008, they hoarded food, put their money in gold and prepared to evacuate their children to the countryside. And they agreed that nothing had changed since then.

Portrait
Joris Luyendijk was born in Amsterdam. He is a writer, journalist and author of Hello Everybody!: One Journalist´s Search for Truth in the Middle East. In 2011 Luyendijk was as ignorant of a ´CDO´ or any other maddening financial acronym as you or I. The Guardian asked him to look at the world of finance from a beginner´s perspective and chart his learnings - the hugely popular Banking Blog was the result of this investigation.
