Lobbying Power

I took this picture when I was interviewing bankers on EU financial market reforms. My thesis is about lobbying groups and their efforts to influence financial reforms after the last financial crisis. When I was gazing at the huge building of one of the biggest banks in France at its La Defense headquarters, the lobbying power of the banking sector became a visual, intimidating reality. Picture 2: Like this construction site, EU financial reforms are an ongoing political constructing site.
