Have Banks Bottomed Out? What is the Future of Banking Globally? And Where to Invest for Growth.

The past 10 days have been “the most dramatic in Wall Street’s 216-year history” seeing Lehman Brothers collapse, AIG fall into critical distress, and the US Federal Reserve creating a c. US$1 Trillion rescue plan to “save the world”.
