I appreciate what Duffie is doing here. Its a clean, logical and sensible description of whats going on with derivatives regulation. Its also nonpatisan, which that the regular media will surely ignore it.

I like the CIA/Vietnam approach. If they screw this up again we give them a shot of morphine, a 9mm in the ear, and then we dump the body in an alley. It will send a message, and also address the unemployment problem for the kids coming out of the MBA/MS in Finance programs.
