On 23 november 2015, Joris Luyendijk gave a lecture on his experiences with the workings of the global banking system. He interviewed insiders of London's City (the financial district) and for two years wrote the Banking Blog for the Guardian. His book Swimming with Sharks: My Journey into the World of the Bankers about these interviews was published this year. Luyendijk is a journalist and anthropologist and has previously published Hello Everybody!: One Journalist's Search for Truth in the Middle East.
