A humorous look at the world of banking and large corporations during the financial turmoil within Europe and the US.

The series considers how those involved in financial exploitation view their market and looks at what they would find acceptable and within scope.

This piece looks into the future, assuming that the current trend continues unchecked. If the rich continue to get richer and become even fewer in number, then those who still have wealth will be able to buy anyone or anything, but will there be anything to buy?

Thanks, this one just seemed a good idea at the time when I was expecting one or more of our banks to collapse. It seems less relevant now, but I suspect more is going on behind the scenes that we are not allowed to know about. :laughing:

Hey, thanks for looking in. That is one way of looking at it. However, who pays the politicians? I have assumed this could be bankers/corporates, perhaps all three? :-)

That's what I was thinking, doesn't matter who we elect, its all about the people buying the politicians. Grate political work.

I wont be surprised if this is what becomes of Human trafficking in the distant future, I do like the dark humor but at the same time I can't help be feel sad, and hopeful that this will never happen, also for some strange reason it reminds me of Chobits

I too hope it will not happen, but I fear the eventual collapse of the money systems will leave many in dire hardship. Thanks for looking in and great comments. :tea::biscuit:

This is depressing to me...
At first when I looked at it I thought it was innapropiate because I didn't look at captions...
When I read the comments and looked more closely, this is terrible...people selling theirself because they're so poor..

The girl on the bottom right corner looked so sad... ;A;

Already the gap between rich and poor is widening rapidly. I hope something good happens to reverse the debt mountains built up by the banks, before we all reach this stage! :fingerscrossed::-). Thanks for your comments. :-)
