Howard Davies (British Deputy governor of the Bank of England)


No one has a greater asset for his business than a man's pride in his work.


Mary Parker Follett (1868-1933, American author)


Central banks don't have divine wisdom.  They try to do the best analysis they can and must be prepared to stand or fall by the quality of that analysis.


Eddie George (Governor of the Bank of England)


I hate banks.  They do nothing positive for anybody except take care of themselves.  They're first in with their fees and first out when there's trouble.


Harvey Goldsmith (1963-, British rock-concert promoter)
