The news that SocGen is going out to market with a request for more funds from its shareholders* reminded me of an Alex cartoon from a few days ago.

For obvious copyright reasons I can’t (or at least shouldn’t) include it here, so follow the link. Maybe a few more “rogue traders” will be found once this possibility strikes home.

BTW – Alex is one of the most consistently on the mark cartoons about banking, a subject that normally does not get much in the way of comic exposure. I would recommend a daily dose.
