Video: Russian TV on Bankers’ Stressful Lives

I did an interview recently for RT London, which I gather is sort of Putin’s version of a Russian CNN or Qatar’s Al Jazeera. Just more sensational.

They wanted to cover what they call a recent string of high-profile banker suicides.  I have zero reason to think bankers commit suicide in higher numbers than any other profession, and if I had to guess, the rate of depression or suicide probably reflects prevailing rates in other high stress areas.

But of course, stressful jobs have different effects on different people.  Below is my 15-seconds of skype video fame on RT London TV.

I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
