“No cash, Carney?” Bank of England Governor unable to find wallet

Mark Carney did eventually come up with a credit card

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney appeared unable to find his wallet while attending a central bank event to promote public understanding of economics.

When everyone in the room was asked to take out a purse or wallet, as an example of something that represented the economy, Carney hunted in several pockets before drawing a blank.

“No cash, Carney?” television host and conference moderator Ranvir Singh said jokingly to the central bank governor.

Earlier, the Canadian-born Carney said he first visited the Liverpool area three decades ago, when local rock group the Lightning Seeds – later well-known for an England soccer anthem – became his favourite band. He also supports local soccer team Everton.
