Wall Street sees out bad year

Bankers in the US have faced huge public anger over global economic woes in 2009.

    It is the last day of business for Wall Street in 2009 - as the world reflects on a turbulent 12 months for the global economy.

    Bankers and their multi-million-dollar bonuses drew much of the public's anger, especially as the US is still, officially, in recession.
