Da Wiki, um artigo sobre o antigo presidente do Banco Real da Escócia. Fred Goodwin:
Frederick Anderson "Fred" Goodwin FRSE (born 17 August 1958) is a Scottish chartered accountant and former banker who was Chief executive officer of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS) between 2001-09.
From 2000-08 he presided over RBS's rapid rise to global prominence as the world's largest company by assets (£1.9 trillion), and fifth-largest bank by stock market value and its even more rapid fall as RBS was forced into effective nationalisation in 2008. On 11 October 2008, Goodwin officially announced his resignation as chief executive and an early retirement, effective from 31 January 2009 – a month before RBS announced that its 2008 loss totalled £24.1 billion, the largest annual loss in UK corporate history.
Goodwin's knighthood, awarded in 2004 for "services to banking", was "cancelled and annulled" on 1 February 2012.
Em 2004 foi armado cavaleiro. Em 2112 foi apeado e passou de cavalo para burro. A ética inglesa mesmo em rito escocês, não perdoa falhanços rotundos que prejudicam a economia de um país.
Que fazer com os nosso cavaleiros de indústria, no caso bancária, que nem ostentam títulos que lhes possam ser retirados?
