The building to the left of HSBC (below) is the newly constructed KPMG offices. I read the other day that many of these building have plummeted in value wiping millions off the companies' asset sheets. Reminded me of Jesus' saying:
For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down to estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to ridicule him...' Luke 14:28f
Well boys (and these 'masters of the universe' all seem to be boys) no one is laughing now.
