  • The demonic analog seems apt in this gripping account of the history of financial innovation, or mystificatiion, and its denouement in the crash(es) of 2007 to 2008. The response of the OWS is in context in this saga of the strange overdose on casino capitalism in exact timing with the resurgence of neoliberalism in the past generation. One of the issues is the complexity of the new game, and the way that it paralyzes normal reactions (such as indignation at the swindels underway). It is perhaps for this reason that politicians, without the transparency of the usual criminality, were forced to take advice from the perps themselves, who should have gone to jail, cf. Obama and his Mephisto'd sidekick, and demon's apprentice, Geithner. This is a strange tale of meritocracy in failure, as the very intelligent find themselves outsmarted in a game that defeated them, even as others have profited from the disaster.
    The envoi of the book: "What started out as an arcane twist of high finance--derivatives--has now corrupted the entire financial world, and has set a hellish trap for taxpayers and their representatives that offers no way out'. The Mepisto analogy works only so far, and is unfair to the victims who are not devil worshippers: the passage to hell is for the common citizen who trusted market capitalism, while the perps have survived handily. Such a game, with a grotesque Social Darwinist leitmotif must wind down, sooner or later, lawfully or else: the disillusion with markets will soon be beyond repair. Next.

  • This book is a tell all for those wondering where , why, and how the market roller coasters as it does. And when traders in the know decide to get off with their clients money... Beware there still around wearing different hats

  • Very few do, but Mr Dunbar has the chops to write about this topic. I expected a lot from this book. He explains things well. I wish he would eschew the usual hype - the breathless - 300Trillion of interest-rate swaps! So-what? for every change in rates, someone makes and someone else looses and equivalent amount. no market takes long to go from 'hedging' to speculating. whether rates or credit derivatives. the issue worth discussing is concentration or liquidity. now, that is something to be alarmed about. I wish there was a more in-depth analysis of whether the regulators were aware or not that one outfit (AIG) had singularly sold protection (long risk) against the street. akin to what LTCM had done when they had bet the farm on the on and off-the-run treasury spreads reverting to normal - AGAINST the street. now that we have trade repositories, has that problem been ameliorated. THAT would be interesting. There is enough CNBC quality reporting in the world. You are better than that Mr Dunbar

  • Fascinating.

  • good book

  • Must-read...Anyone in the financial sector should absorb/Clear understanding of mkt. as it truly is! Many revelations & factoids. Marvellous!. Engaging.

  • This pretty much explains everything from a highly qualified industry journalist who was right in the middle of the derivatives storm. The only criticism I have is that, even with my Economics degree, I was still confused by some of the financial instruments like credit default swaps, CDO's, SPV's. I think the journalist is so used to talking to insiders he forgets that the average American needs much more explanation for what a SPV or credit default swap is and how it works in simple terms. The whole point is that you shouldn't need a Masters in Financial Engineering to understand how derivatives work and how dangerous they are. I know an airplane traveling at 500 MPH flying into a building is dangerous without knowing everything about aeronautics and chemistry and physics. I'd like an epilogue that goes more into detail of Frank-Dodds and explains how nothing much has really changed.

  • The second half on subprime mortgages, ABS and ABS CDO were trapped in accounts of personalities than the big picture. The first half was exceptionally good on synthetic CDO and the Basle accord formulation. Many insider view and not that many books would dare to say derivatives sales are 'rent seeking' outright.
