Pope’s on the Tube, where are the Banks?

The Vatican launched their new YouTube channel today.

I stumbled across it because it came up as the Papal Channel, and I misread it as PayPal (only joking :-)  The main video really does illustrate the march of technology well and Pope Benedict XVI is quoted at the end stating that:

"New technologies have an extraordinary potential if used to favour understanding and solidarity.  These technologies are a gift for humanity: therefore we have to make sure the advantages they offer are put to the service of all peoples and communities."

Dominic Lawson of the Independent would disagree, as he blames computers for this credit crisis.  Something I'll come back to later and I just hope that Dominic's soul is ok after the Pope's endorsements.

Anyway, I then searched for the YouTube channels offered by banks.

The World Bank has a channel:

And Barclaycard are in there, as a sponsor:

Bank of America have a channel, called "Your Money" (only available in the USA):

Wells Fargo has one:

but it was difficult finding many others.

    Your link proves the point I was making as there are only a few more FSI’s in the link.
    This is a really poor performance for an industry that has no material products you can kick; just services based upon words, advice and promises.
    These services would be far better conveyed, sold and understood through this media than most banks are delivering today.
