‘I’m as much an anarchist in theory as I am in practice’: Fernando Pessoa’s ‘Anarchist banker’ in a management education context

Introduction

‘You mean to say, then, that you are an anarchist in exactly the same way as all those people in workers’ organizations are anarchists? You mean that there’s no difference between you and the men who throw bombs and form trade unions?’
