A popular take on those who work in finance is that they don’t care about the income gap and would just as soon tell the poor to shove off. As this story reports, it’s not that simple: 75 percent of City of London financial professionals surveyed by ComRes for a study by the St. Paul’s Institute agree that the wealth gap is too big. The survey, it’s worth noting, didn’t ask what should be done about it. That may be something on which the City (and in the U.S., Wall Street) differs from the rest of the populace.
Interesting finding. The best way to find RRE (respect for rules, respect truth and empathy) is through real life trade off situations like this when people will go against their own interests to state truth.
