What was apparent was that he did not really understand what he was talking about. He was just getting angry – probably because he considers that anything he is too dumb to comprehend must by definition be “evil” rather than a statement on his IQ.

Cutting through the BS written about bonds and demystifying the subject is a thing you do superbly well, Salmon.

If the product wasn’t bonds but something easier to understand like cars it would be obvious that demonizing buyers for not buying is just silly.

Imagine if the Times demonized the public for not buying Detroit cars in 2008. Or blamed condo flippers for not keeping the housing bubble going in 2007.
