QOTD: Mark Carney

On being challenged over an evasive answer in a Committee hearing, Carney quips:

I didn’t get to my position by being overly precise when I didn’t need to be.

Yet bloggers spend much of their time proffering opinions on questions nobody is asking.

  • I call it pre-emptive posting. I post things now that no-one cares about, so when we hit the event where someone cares I can say “well as I’ve said in the past XXX”. For some reason the fact it was written before I had to care should make the idea more persuasive right 😉

    • Hey, I’m not saying Carney is right: bloggers are incredibly influential people, after all!
