Daily Kos: The dollar has lost 1/3 of its value
I was a central banker and market supervisor during some of the period of deregulation.  In retrospect it was a mistake to let Citibank and Goldman Sachs define what a good market or a good regulation might be.  But there will be lots of time to learn the lessons of the coming collapse once it is past.
No, there won't be time if the FT propagates the idea that the regulators were to blame. The time to talk about how deregulation was wrong is now.
