"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"It is usually said to someone"
"nPenningtvättskandalen should be for the banks what pedofilhärvan is for the catholic church: the which allowed us to see an institution in a new light. Perhaps it has always been something other than we thought? After the scandals of the Panama papers, Danske Bank, Nordea and now polisrazzian at Swedbank seems to money laundering will not be any exception. For without some of the banks, the international crime hardly exist in it's present condition. The day the banks put a stop to the pengatvätten it will be difficult to continue with the drug trafficking, human trafficking and tax evasion."
"It is easy to think that it is about failure: well it's not so easy for bankcheferna to keep track of all the accounts? But the ceo Birgitte Bonnesen rose to power precisely because of the successful transactions in the Baltic states, where she was regional manager between 2011 and 2014. In Estonia, Swedbank has close to half of the market, and SEB the other half. "
"it was the bank's questionable business that contributed to the deep financial crisis in the Baltic countries 2008, which could have cracked the bank unless the Swedish government had gone in with 412 garantimiljarder. After this recovered Swedbank and began again to make brilliant business. They did not know with whom - despite the fact that they cast suspicions of ordinary people who come into an office and want to put 3000 dollars in cash – is hard to believe."
"being a ceo of an enormous company less one hour before the general meeting has never happened before. But the rest of the board are left with higher compensation."
"Penningtvättskandalen at Swedbank raises many questions. The Financial Times writes in a long article that Sweden, which had such a good reputation, perhaps now is about to become a corrupt country among others. "
"nBankerna as an institution more and more of the power in society: they are blowing up financial bubbles which lead to crises, own our bank id, and half of swedes have a mortgage loan. The papers call on Swedbank's customers to make the switch bank. Rather, should the deal get us to discuss whether it is reasonable that private companies have so much power over society. "
"In a new report from the Catalysis suggests economist Samuel Kazen Orrefur that the state take power over the pengaskapandet with an e-crown, which would reduce the banks' power significantly. It is, after all, our money that keeps the banks up there - is it not logical that we should also have something to say?"
