    Pour une finance digne de confiance

    La perte de confiance du public vis-à-vis des secteurs bancaire et financier est justifiée. La confiance ne sera rétablie que si les questions d’aléa moral et de conflits d’intérêts sont traitées. Des réformes s’imposent pour que les banques et les banquiers – et non les contribuables – paient le prix de leurs échecs et soient tenus pleinement responsables de leurs actes.
