David Blanchflower: Mark Carney Has a Major Task Ahead at the Bank of England

In this article in the Independent, David Blanchflower compares the task facing former head of the Bank of Canada Mark Carney as head of the Bank of England to the task facing former University of Michigan Provost Phil Hanlon as head of Dartmouth. For the Record, from what I saw, I thought Phil Hanlon did a great job at the University of Michigan as Budget Associate Dean of the College of Literature Science and Arts, as Budget Associate Provost of the university, and finally as Provost. The University of Michigan weathered tough financial times well, which was only possible because our leaders were good at distinguishing fat from muscle.
