Mark Carney’s ‘shock’ appointment means more of the same
by Ann Pettifor, www.guardian.co.uk | November 26, 2012
“… He [the British chancellor] confirmed this by appointing an ex-Goldman Sachs banker, Mark Carney, as governor of the Bank of England.
“…Carney is a central banker steeped in the culture and practices of Goldman Sachs’s investment banking arm. Before becoming Canada’s central bank governor, he spent 13 years with Goldman Sachs in its London, Tokyo, New York and Toronto offices…”
Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney Appointed Governor of the Bank of England

“…The Bank of Canada announced that Her Majesty the Queen has approved the appointment of Mark Carney as Governor of the Bank of England effective 1 July 2013. He will serve a five-year term.
“Governor Carney will continue to serve in his current position until 1 June to ensure a smooth transition to the next Governor of the Bank of Canada. The Governor will remain Chair of the Financial Stability Board….”
“…The Board of Directors will shortly form a Special Committee comprised of independent directors whose mandate will be to undertake a recruitment process for the selection of the next Governor. Governors of the Bank of Canada are appointed by the independent directors, subject to the approval of the Minister of Finance and the federal Cabinet.”
Governor Carney said:
“The Bank [of Canada] is helping to lead the reform of the global financial system.”
So his focus is on “reform” of the “global” financial system.
But he also said that the Bank of Canada will continue to
“promote the economic and financial welfare of all Canadians”.
So is the Bank of Canada serving the welfare of Canadians and the welfare of a global financial system? Are these two goals possible at the same time?
And the directors who choose the next governor are said to be “independent”, but everything was approved by the Queen and her government in Canada, and her government in England!
As long as everyone is so “independent” – of the Queen? or of Goldman Sachs? – I guess nobody needs to be elected to these powerful positions or scrutinized by the public?
We’re forced to use their money. When do we get to vote for those who run global banking institutions such as the Financial Stability Board? Is the FSB in the Canadian constitution?
