No one at EPIC seems willing to consider the lessons of the fundamentally-flawed “ethnographic” research that has been conducted by the group’s presenters in partnership with Wells Fargo over the years. EPIC has released no comment about its financial sponsorship by Wells Fargo. This is not what ethnography does. This is not what anthropology does.
Wells Fargo will teach teens that the path to financial prosperity just so happens to come through the financial services offered by Wells Fargo itself. That’s no coincidence. Teen Financial Education Day is really just a sales gimmick, at which Wells Fargo will teach the children of working Americans that they can’t have the privilege of careers in the arts.
Bernie Sanders has introduced a bill to break up banks that are too big to fail. What the Republican managers of Congress have done with it is absurd.
