Identity is the new money (very short for banks)

  1. 1. Identity is the New Money (for Banks) The bank should be the place where you store your identity. You can store your money anywhere.

Good name in man and woman, Dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls; Who steals my purse steals trash; ‘tis something, nothing; ‘Twas mine, ‘tis his, and has been slave to thousands; But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him, And makes me poor indeed. Othello, Act 3, Scene 3 Guildford Shakespeare Company (2014) Check out the case study of Ireland when the banks went on strike. You can find it at:
