I’m up to detikbet articles about the economy and the financial sectors shenanigans, which I’m reading as source material for some work-related writing. This description of credit swaps and derivatives makes about as much sense as any I’ve read. It boils down this: we’re basically paying off Wall Street’s gambling debts. Literally, throwing good money after bad. And I think what’s making people angry is that none of it has eased their economic pain.
