Mixed media on paper

No doubt there are a lot of hard working people in the Banks, financial institutions etc.But as we
know to our cost, a few rotten apples can do a lot of damage,in a linked computerized world economy, in a relatively short period of time. The city gent figure, the bowler hat,an old symbol for the City,has swallowed the people in his search for a quick buck. Oblivious to the pain it may cost, he watches his bets rise and fall on the market,a bonus won, a bonus lost. Immersed in a field of money green he is nervous but excited.
