    Default New BOE Governor is ex-Goldman Sachs

    Looks like George Osborne has found an excellent successor to Mervyn King.

    BBC News - Mark Carney named new Bank of England governor

    This is quite a coup, and very good news for the UK, and therefore for us.

    I doubt he makes more than one big decision every year, and even that will be by committee.

    Is this the same GS that 'helped' Greece gain entry into the eurozone?

    A superb banker who has steered Canada through some dangerous waters.

    The usual rent-a-crowd of idiots who are programmed to start ranting automatically by scanning headlines with words such as "Goldman" will probably join this thread soon

    Interesting to see that he costs less than Mike Aynsley.

    Much more admiration for a guy that has left Goldmans and has gone into the "public" sector than the other way around

    At least he has some knowledge of what Goldmans would have been up to and surely is in a better place to put regulations in place that will prevent them from crucifying taxpayers in the future

    Coupled with how well Canada have managed through the last few years and had little or no property bubble

    All in all an excellent appointment

    Shame we can't lure some canadian bankers to here to take over from the shower we have - Imagine Boucher is actually running a bank!

    I'd say running the Bank of England is a much easier task than sorting out the IBRC mess petunia

    They'll ignore he left Goldman Sachs a long time ago and his CV does make him look well qualified for the job.

    I can imagine we'll soon get the usual conspiracy nutjobs showing up with comments about vampire squids and quotes from idiotic sites like zerohedge.
    These men had only learned how to act in the interest of their own...private monopolies which may be likened to totalitarian oligarchies within our democratic State.
