Lex: BIS - bust-up in Basel

Bankers are back to the excessive risk taking that brought on the financial crisis. That, at least, is the fear of the Bank for International Settlements. The so-called "central banks' central bank" has summoned a number of private sector bank chiefs to Basel this weekend to rap their knuckles about the return of "aggressive behaviour that prevailed during the pre-crisis period". Richard Stovin-Bradford previews the meeting.
