A Royal Commission precedent: In 1937 Australia witnessed a Royal Commission into the banks. The Napier Commission was established following public antagonism to a banking sector indifferent to the public interest, not least in the claimed deepening of the 1930s Depression. The Commonwealth Bank itself, created in 1911, having been appropriated by a banking elite in the 1920s, was part of the problem. Written by Evan Jones.
Every second month a new scandal emanates from within the Australian financial sector. Each scandal has its unique set of victims, accompanied by devastating consequences. Few of these victims have achieved justice or adequate compensation.
