Something has always bothered me.
The media talks about bank shareholders as if we are one big homogenous group of people who care only about the bottom line.
I hold two banks - CBA and SGB.
However, I have a mortgage with the CBA. I for one would rather see an interest rate cut in the interests of struggling Australians (of which I am not - I have a relatively small mortgage) rather than get a couple of cents extra in dividend. However, the media talk about ME as if I am the villain.
What do people think? Its a subtle one, but a very real one.
