The article argues that "The banks are failing to provide sufficient support for the demand for investment funding, and are effectively removed from financing corporate investment. In this case, what does not make sense to investors does not make sense to society at large."

In this case, what doesn’t make sense to investors doesn’t make sense to the society at large."
