Boy, that's a tough one

It's complex. Get it? Ha, dumb joke.

I think I comprehend what you're getting at. I contend that banks are more opportunist financiers than mastermind financiers. I suppose it's a matter of "...so who is on which end of the leash?"

A lot of the banksters have direct influence upon the populace. So do a lot of industrial concerns (e.g. Boeing, Mitsubishi, Daimler, etc.). I think a significant difference is in the very structure of production. Banks don't need to rely on much of a supply chain before they can offer retail crap to consumers (especially when specie is 86'd). Companies like Boeing, though, can't do their MIC thing without a whole bunch of previous stuff being manufactured first (or mined or whatever).

They are more complex processes, like "I, Pencil" suggests (apologies if you're unfamiliar with that reference). Banksters play their role, for sure, but my opinion is that they don't deserve a share of the marquee billing.

Perhaps "Military Industrial Financial Pharmaceutical Constitutional Complex" is better. Or maybe just "Mystery School."
