Cartoon about bankers’ bonuses. Showing a banker holding a bonus, with the ground beneath the banker cracking under the weight of the bonus.
A cartoon about large bankers bonuses and the effects of the bonus culture.
Bankers’ bonuses and salaries are so grossly inflated that they are destabilising the economy and are causing economic and social fracturing (symbolised in the cartoon by the fact that the ground beneath the banker is fracturing and cracking due to the large size of the banker’s bonus, thus destroying the economic base on which the economy is built).
The cartoon is an illustration of the social and economic instability that is resulting from the runaway growth of bonuses and top salaries under the current unregulated version of the capitalist system.
