Libor scandal as explained by Jon Stewart

Lately, it seems scandals have been hitting the finacial world one after the other. The most unbelievable, though, has to be the latest revelations about manipulation of the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor). Barclays was the first to be fined, but we know that other banks are being probed over the scandal.

Jon Stewart discussed the Libor scandal on last night's "The Daily Show." As he says, it turns out it's not six members of the Illuminati controlling the world's finance, it's 16 London bankers that are lunch buddies.
