Kropotkin: simple question

From Mr Mark Bogard.

Sir, The real problem with Sir Richard Lambert’s search for a code of ethics in banking (“A league of their own”, Lombard, February 11) was well captured in the 19th century by Peter Kropotkin, the Russian anarchist social philosopher, who would ask simply: “Whose ethics?”
