On Monday, the German multinational investment bank –and the world's 15th largest bank by total assets– started cutting thousands of jobs as part of an $8.3 billion overhaul announced one day earlier. The bank's workforce is set to be reduced by 18,000 to around 74,000 employees by 2022, as Deutsche Bank scraps its global equities and trading operations.
The move has already impacted the bank's shares, which started to fall after initial 4 percent gains on Monday.
"The financial system is in trouble and this is just one sign of what is going on. This has happened in previous financial problems in the 1930s or the 1960s or the 1990s," Rogers said in a phone interview with RT. He explained that central banks around the globe drove interest rates "to crazy levels," and now we have to pay the price for that.
