When God speaks, do bankers listen? Stephen Green

Posted on the May 17th, 2010

Before you watch the video interview below with banker Stephen Green, you  may first want to read this rather hard hitting session with him late last year (“The New World Order ‘Is Already Underway'” Spiegel Online International, Dec 19, 2009). Just for a little context, I suggest this. And given that these days many of us are a touch cranky on the subject of bankers giving advice.

But considering that Green heads up one of the world’s largest banking groups, HSBC, and that he is also an ordained priest in the Church of England, and that he is also the author of a book titled “Good Value: Reflections on Money, Morality and an Uncertain World” (2009), I wanted to listen to what he has to say.

The video excerpt here features an interview with Green in New York, in which he discusses social responsibility (“Market Fundamentalism: Whose Job Is It to Fix Capitalism?” Feb 2010). The interviewer is Vishakha Desai. Full interview here (1:12). From FORA.tv.
