The story of The Anarchist Banker takes place in a Lisbon café where the narrator meets an old friend, now a wealthy banker. He questions his friend about his anarchist origins and discovers to his amazement that the banker still considers himself to be an anarchist. The story revolves around the banker's vigorous defense of his position and his assertion that he is the only genuine anarchist among the banker's so-called anarchist friends.
What I want to say is that there is no divergence between my theories and the conduct of my life, rather there is an absolute conformity. That my life is not that of syndicalists or bomb throwers--this is true. But it is their lives that are outside of anarchism, outside of anarchist ideals. Mine is not. In me--yes, in me, the banker, the capitalist, the ruthless monopoly financier if you wish--in me, the theory and practice of anarchism are perfectly fused.
