Finance
Finance is a field that deals with the study of investments. It includes the dynamics of assets and liabilities over time under conditions of different degrees of uncertainties and risks. Finance can also be defined as the science of money management. Market participants aim to price assets based on their risk level, fundamental value, and their expected rate of return. Finance can be broken into three sub-categories: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance.
Banking
We [Banks] have a "right to make a profit"
Brian Moynihan, CEO, Bank of America, 2011 statement. Source: Money.CNN.com October 5th, 2011.
Banking
The banks do create money. They have been doing it for a long time, but they didn't quite realise it, and they did not admit it. Very few did. You will find it in all sorts of documents, financial textbooks, etc. But in the intervening years, and we must all be perfectly frank about these things, there has been a development of thought, until today I doubt very much whether you would get many prominent bankers to attempt to deny that banks create credit.
H. W. White, Chairman of the Associated Banks of New Zealand, to the New Zealand Monetary Commission, 1955.
Banking
There is no group of people on the planet more stupid than bankers. They should be called bonkers. Look at the famous banks that are suddenly losing billions, because they handed out loans like lunatics.
Michael Winner, English film director and producer. From his interview in The Daily Mail (UK) newspaper, 17th June 2008.
