"I think CDS desensitise lenders/arrangers to credit risk. It's like having a quickie divorce available after a drunken wedding in Las Vegas. Debt should be like a marriage with each party knowing it is to a large extent binding. Without the quickie "out" that CDS offer, credit risk would have been respected more and less credit would have been extended."

"'Voters are, quite rationally, rather ignorant about politics.' Well, indeed. Which is why I always feel slightly uncomfortable when people accuse our representatives of being 'career politicians'. Since governing a developed country is a challenging job, who'd want an amateur politician?"
