All the seeming mathematical precision that was brought to investment, all the complicated new products, including the explosion of derivatives, that were intended to diffuse and minimize risk...

Paul Volcker is an idiot. He completely misses the point, that it’s the moral hazard created by central banks which got us this mess.

After Volcker missed the boat with his investigation of the oil-for-food scandal, I don’t lend a lot of credibility to his meanderings.
