內容簡介

與鯊魚共泳:銀行家血淋淋的真實告白,透過人類學角度分析全球金融業

荷蘭調查記者Joris Luyendijk對於銀行家的了解,如同一般人一樣:幾乎一無所知。他一開始認為所有的銀行家都是無情、善於競爭、嗜血、沉迷於金錢、對於周遭事物無感。直到他被指派調查金融業這個神祕行業,Joris開始深入金融世界,調查超過200位業內人士,包括精英銀行家、避險基金經理人、後台資訊科技人士、人資主管及在金融危機慘遭裁員的員工們。這些業內人士打破了保密條款,大膽真實分享銀行家的工作內容,甚至包括如何看待自我及成為金融世界的吸血蟲,以及金融業違背常理的雇用與解雇文化。甚至許多人承認自從2008年雷曼兄弟的垮台,導致他們開始貯藏食物、將資產轉移至海外,甚至將家人遷移到鄉下。Joris發現,問題不僅是貪婪和銀行家造成,而是整個金融體系本身因為基本的利息衝突和錯誤動機所造成,透過作者精闢分析與見解,發現人類行為與全球金融業即將面臨的挑戰和誘惑。

‘It’s not the people who are bad, it’s the culture.’

‘Friends turned on me, on my wife.’

‘This job involves in some part selling your soul for a good salary.’

‘You’re sitting there, and you may have just made the decision that destroyed the world.’

Winner of the NS Public Prize for Book of the Year 2015

Joris Luyendijk, an investigative journalist, knew almost nothing about banking until he was assigned to investigate the financial sector. Over two years he spoke to more than 200 people – from the competitive investment bankers and elite hedge fund managers to downtrodden back office staff and those made redundant in regular ‘culls’. They opened up about what they actually do, about the toxic hiring and firing culture and about the overwhelming technological and mathematical opacity of their work. They admitted that in the crash of 2008, they hoarded food, put their money in gold and prepared to evacuate their children to the countryside. And they agreed that nothing had changed since then.
