This is a bit of an old reference in internet time (from > month ago), but this is a new blog, so who cares.

Below is a link to one of the better bits I’ve heard on the reality and dangers of deratives trading, how the trade was allowed to grow and thrive over the years, and how the lack of transparency leant itself to the eventual collapse.

“Frank Partnoy directs the University of San Diego’s new Center for Corporate and Securities Law.”  He’s also a former derivatives trader.

Enjoy!

I began this blog over two years ago, but it never got off the ground. Instead, I started a typepad blog focused on goings-on in my profession.

Two things I’ve learned:
1. WordPress is much better than typepad
2. Professional blogs are hugely valuable but don’t feed your soul

We’ll see if I can get it right this time.
