Credit derivatives aren't regulated at all. Total lack of regulation of this dangerous financial instrument is what got the ball rolling. Eventually, coupled with mortgage products that were simply crazy on their collective face, the risk bubble could no longer be contained

Call me crazy, but why are people investing in things they don't understand? Somehow, the gov't is supposed to save the investors from themselves?
