That's why I'm worried about a CDS cascade, which the bailout doesn't address.
Would you lay out the consequences of a CDS cascade? All I can grasp is that it would be a Really Bad Thing.
I haven't seen anything which talks about new regulations for CDS, but I have seen reports of new CDS sales. Is that correct? To me that sounds like a doctor telling a Stage 3 alcoholic that the next drink will kill him and the patient responding by going to a bar.
What will it take to bring CDS under control (defined as not posing a ginormous risk to the global financial system)?
