Bank of Dave: How I Took On the Banks: The Story of One Mans Heroic Attempt to Take On the Banks isimli kitabın yazarı Dave Fishwick Fishwick olarak belirtilmiştir. The global financial system is in crisis, bankers are in disrepute and Britain is on the brink of a double-dip recession. Now one man, fed up with never-ending tales of greed and corruption, sets out to prove that there is a different way of doing things – by opening his own bank to help inject much-needed life into local businesses. Dave Fishwick is a self-made, straight-talking man from Burnley who hates the banks. Published to tie in with a “Channel 4″ series of the same name, this is the story of his attempt to set up a simple, no-nonsense bank that actually cares about its customers. Dave plans to put hundreds of thousands of pounds of his own money into the enterprise; he will offer his customers a far better rate of interest than they get on the high street; he will lend to struggling local businesses that the banks dont want to know about; and he aims to bring the Bank of Dave into profit within 180 days. If he succeeds, hell give whatever he makes to charity. If he fails, hell make a terrible loss and ruin his hard-earned reputation as a successful businessman. Can one man really take on the banking giants and make a real difference to local businesses and his community? Dave Fishwick certainly hopes so.
