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.
