Re: Can they not use their powers for good?

"Not sure about bankers, it would be popular but the far more popular choice would be for them to start monitoring all the FIFA execs."

The question is how much damage do they do? FIFA results in fairly local damage. Globally they only deal with a couple of billions so that's hardly a burden to society.

On the other hand banks have put whole countries into poverty. Just think of Spain or Greece or the UK. Banks are responsible for Austerity politics which do nothing else than making the problem worse.

However the big problem is, that banks mainly stay within their legal boundaries. Therefore it's near impossible to prosecute them.
