The act of blaming investment bankers for all of society's woes and publicly chastising them for their greediness and stupidity.

During the financial crisis, banker bashing was championed by the media and political elites, who have been leading a campaign to limit their extravagant bonuses. Before paying back TARP funds, bankers pretended to care, but have since returned to their greedy ways.
"I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of, you know, fat-cat bankers on Wall Street", said President Barack Obama, a typical example of banker bashing.
