Is it necessary to justify your profession to the world? Is it necessary to tell the world what work you are doing and why it is adding a lot of value to the world?
Who is to judge whether you are doing the ‘right’ job or no? These are all so difficult to answer that many people do not attempt to answer it. Of course many people try to answer this question (at least to themselves) and it sometimes looks fine. For example a friend who works in the Atomic Energy program of the government feels that all Chartered Accountants in the country only help in tax evasion, hence their role is not justified. One equity broker I know feels he adds a lot of value by helping a client trade. Then there are many life insurance agents who feel that they add value by helping people save money.
Is there a need to justify what you do? Actually there is no need to justify to the whole world, but many people think they need to ‘justify’ to their inner voice. The problem is quite simply “I am OK, you are not OK” syndrome.
In the US of A there is so much hatred against financial services as a sector that people may just tear up their credit cards and not make any payment on the same. However using all the government program money to pay their own staff far more than what the world considers as ‘legitimate’ sounds so corny!
