The NYTimes accepts a large amount of advertising from Banks, brokerage houses, and the like. Bank runs = lost ad revenue.

Stephen R. Malphrus
Director, Information Resources Management
Federal Reserve System
For running a Year 2000 working group representing financial institutions.
"Steve has probably created the most organized working group that we have. They have regular monthly meetings; they have detailed agenda packages; they have now had two or three industry summits. He has a great air of authority and enthusiasm for what he does, [and] he has engendered respect from other agencies."
