Is there a future for ethical banking?

Three comments:

  • Regarding banks and banking in the modern economy, neoliberalism is ideologically, philosophically, and practically incompetent.

  • Libertarians and the hard neoliberal right are tilting against KYC, which prevents them doing profitable business with Russian oligarchs at the moment.
