Isn't this giving the crooks the keys?!?!

ATHENS, Greece -- Greece appointed senior banker Lucas Papademos prime minister Thursday

Ok, I don't know about you but don't you think this is just giving the keys to the crooks? Why would you appoint a banker the prime minister?

The 64-year-old former vice president of the European Central Bank will lead a government backed by both the governing Socialists and the opposition conservatives that will operate until early elections, tentatively set for February. He replaces outgoing Prime Minister George Papandreou midway through his four-year term.

The new Greek cabinet, whose members were not named, will be sworn in Friday

Is the cabinet going to be full of more bankers? I see that the news brought up the stock market but is that because they know that anything that will now be done will only help the rich get even richer while they sink Greece even more? Is this the plan by big banks to bankrupt places so they can take over in office and push even more agendas for themselves?

Wanted to add this as well

Shares on the Athens Stock Exchange were up 1.6 percent at 779.6 on the news of the power deal power deal. That came despite more bad news for Greece's recession-hit economy: unemployment surged to 18.4 percent in August, up from 12.2 for that month in 2010.
European officials greeted the Greek news with relief.

They didn't even care that unemployment surged to 18.4 percent, "hey, we got a banker PM now its all good!!!!"
