Liars and bankers

News comes from Canada that according to cutting-edge research on child psychology, children who lie will do better in life. Apparently, the process of formulating a lie requires complex reconnections of the neural pathways in the brain, thus building an alternate reality while keeping the truth at the back of the mind. The scientist who carried out the research added `They even make bankers in later life.’

I am not sure I understood that sentence. Isn’t high finance the main place for big lies? So I would expect that those who start lying at an early age get better at it as they grow up … into bankers. Maybe he should have dropped the `even’ from that sentence.
