«sod your children's employment prospects»
The weekly "The Economist", who are neo-liberal insiders, wrote about the big banks in the City of London:
«the best hope the next generation has of earning a decent living»
Their expectation is that only the children of the affluent and rich (plus a few tokens from outside those groups) will be able to get a «decent living» by being able to get a City job via an expensive private school and Oxbridge. The rest of the next generation will not be «earning a decent living».
