The People vs the Banks

‘Never get between a politician and a bucket of money,’ once said ex PM Paul Keating. The Banking Royal Commission was both scourge and succour to the people for whom they served. George Megalogenis meets the man behind The People vs. The Banks – journalist, Michael Roddan  to unpack what the banking royal commission exposed.

People will protest: you can bank on it. The banking royal commission has put the financial sector on trial and exposed its self-interest, corruption and excess. The People vs The Banks reveals what happens when businesses put profit before punters, reward bad behaviour and assume they are beyond the law. The day of reckoning for liars and thieves in pin-striped suits has arrived.
Michael Roddan covered the royal commission and gives a damning account of how one of the foundations of society let itself get out of control, with chapters such as “Liars and Thieves” and “The Big Rort”.
