For those of you who haven’t seen it I recommend checking out Joris Luyendijk’s Banking Blog over at the Guardian. It’s all about the culture of finance and banking told from the inside and he writes in the introductory piece:
"This is an experimental blog exploring new ways to make a complex issue accessible to complete outsiders. The complex issue here is finance.
This blog started in the summer of 2011 and officially launched on 15 September of that year. As the blog’s author I began at zero, meaning I knew as little about finance as any other outsider. Since then each time I learn or discover something new, it goes on this blog and periodically I write wrap-up pieces surveying surprises, “light bulb moments” and larger lessons.”
It’s a great introduction to a world that is so powerful yet so few of us know anything about.
