Social Capital

In the U.K. we have a severe shortage of social workers. We also have lots of highly intelligent, skilled but unemployed bankers. Can't they do something useful for once and retrain? It'll be a good investment for the future, and we might even forgive their investments in the past.

Fair point. You could have also said workload.

For my former sins I used to work in the financial sector and I'm fully aware that the "long hours" culture also includes time down the pub.
