How did the banks run wild for so long? Six months after the end of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry, what really has changed? The government along with the opposition has accepted all recommendations. A wave of litigation is promised. Civil and criminal penalties have increased. Some CEOs have lost their jobs. But major questions over governance and culture remain unanswered. Experts in the field Michael Roddan, journalist and author of The People Vs The Banks, and Professor Justin O’Brien, author of Trust, Accountability and Purpose, discuss with the Saturday Paper’s, Karen Middleton the legal, corporate and political battles ahead when businesses put profit before punters.
