The media has a regular debate about greed and corruption in the City of London. With insider trading cases rife; the FSA clamping down; whistle-blowers appearing by the minute; and a Bribery Act that is meant to strike the fear of God in all those engaged in such activities; 2012 has seen such practices becoming rarer and harder to practice than ever before. Or has it? Two leading commentators on the financial markets take a microscopic view of greed and corruption in the City and determine if it really does exist and, if so, in what form.
