The WSJ reports that Bank of England Gov. Mark Carney is under fire from those who championed Britain’s exit from the European Union as he decides how long to stay on the job at a critical juncture for the country.
Mark Carney is without doubt one of the world’s top central bankers and George Osborne did well to attract him to the UK. Carney’s expert leadership at the BoE has done much to steer the UK away from the damage of financial speculators. Yes Carney is outspoken but his views have been based on evidence rather than the dogma of Brexit leaders.
The UK needs to keep Carney in place through Brexit to minimize downside risk and economic damage during Brexit.
