This final note today, for the central bank aficionados among you.

The new head of the Bank of England is…a Canadian. Mark Carney — who until today was the governor of the Bank of Canada — has gotten the Queen’s blessing to run the Bank of England.

Not for nothin’, but the Canadian dollar fell today against the greenback.
