Face value

Quotations courtesy of Golem XIV Thoughts:

Mervyn King: 'When you look at Britain's banks you can't help but see they are insolvent.

Mr Skidelsky horrified both Hutton and Cable by saying he felt the entire Globalization and Free Market agenda had to be reconsidered. And that 'protectionism' to protect jobs and wages was necessary.

Will Hutton said, growth - permanent economic growth was inevitable and he was not worried about growth nor sustainability and neither should we be, because - and I kid you not - "we will solve our problems by getting resources from other planets, having huge spaceships for people and economic growth."
