The same is true of chess. Ashkenazi Jews (which are really the genetic subset of Jews that's important to this conversation) make up less than a quarter of a percent of the population of the world, and yet they make up more than half of the world's chess champions. That's a disproportion of more than TWENTY THOUSAND PERCENT. It's an impossible number! By gum there must be a massive worldwide conspiracy by the Jews to take over chess! The only hole in my theory is that it would be completely retarded!
In fact, the real explanation is simple: according to every test of intelligence in the realms of abstract strategy and logic, Ashkenazi Jews are a full standard deviation smarter than the general population in those two areas. (Spatial performance averages a deviation below, if it makes you feel any better.) This has held true for as long as there's been intelligence testing, and it holds true at ages before factors of wealth or education come strongly into play. And in a championship where you're pitting guys against each other one by one to winnow the population down to only the best individual, the population that's ten percent better on average has a huge advantage. As you push that 10% advantage through successive generations, it turns into (as seen) a twenty thousand percent advantage in terms of the likelihood of one of their number reaching the number one spot.
Banking is a similar game, in which thousands and thousands of players are competing for the "championship" of moving up the ladders and getting positions at the biggest and most powerful banks in the world. All the mechanics and percentages run similar to the chess games earlier. If you're a top bank and you're focused on grabbing up only the very best candidate in the world, the chances at any given time that the best candidate available is an Ashkenazi Jew are similar to the chances that the best chess player in the world is an Ashkenazi Jew. Which is to say, probably better than 50% odds.
Is it possible that there's some conspiracy out there, where the most powerful banks in the world would pass up a higher-performing Gentile candidate to hire a lower-performing Jewish one? Sure, but they wouldn't stay the most powerful for long. Banking is too cutthroat to give up that kind of advantage and not end up paying for it.
The reason finance has a disproportionate number of Jews in the top echelon is because they're disproportionally the best candidates for those jobs. It's the effect of a pure meritocracy, just like the kind you keep shouting that we need.
The problem isn't that Jews have some inappropriately terrible power in the world of finance, the real problem is that finance has inappropriately terrible power in the world of the world.
