"Because bankers measure their self-worth in money, and pay themselves a lot of it, they think they're fine fellows and don't need to explain themselves"

About this Quote

This quote by James Buchan is a commentary on the attitude of bankers. It suggests that because bankers are paid a lot of cash, they have a high opinion of themselves and do not feel the requirement to describe their actions. This is since they measure their self-worth in terms of money, and the more cash they make, the more they feel they are successful. This attitude can result in a sense of privilege and an absence of accountability, as bankers might feel that their wealth and status exempt them from having to discuss their choices. This quote is a tip that cash need to not be the only procedure of success, which accountability and transparency need to be expected from those in positions of power.
