Mervyn King speaks on Eurozone risk

He argued that the risk of Eurozone failure was another factor supporting further reform of the UK’s banking system; “… we’ve been pushing for banks to pay out less to their shareholders and employees and instead retain profits as a cushion against possible losses.”
