Bane

Bane
In the words of Warren Buffet, Bill Bane Sr., is, "a great American and one of the last real traders around. I like to call him 'Salvo.'" His wife, Carol, is a huge NASCAR fan, and in her own words "delights in pulling the legs off central bankers." Cooper Bane, son number two, is a thriving artiste who specializes in making art that is much better than the stuff most folks are doing. Jackson, son number three, is a world renowned master chef and plans on opening a restaurant. Bill Bane Jr., son number one, plans on giving Mr. Monroe Trout a run for his money. (Bill Bane, Jr. helped Professor Harvey put the hypertextual glossary together while an MBA student at Duke University). The New York Times Financial Glossary
