The Celtic Leopard

The Sunday Business Post today reported on my article in the latest issue of the Irish Banking Federation's About Banking entitled: The New Normal - Why Personal Banking Will Never Be The Same Again (pages 9-11).

I suggest that Ireland's banks are like Fabrizio, Prince of Salina, in Giuseppe di Lampedusa's one and only novel The Leopard. They are on the cusp of a new era: driven in the short run by our economic crisis and in the long run by less favourable demographic trends.

Though perhaps an opportunity for a budding Don Calogero, the Prince's bourgeois nemesis in the novel.
