Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
investorsspeculators are buying shares on broker credit

Is this something new, like the result of some deregulation?

What I mean is that there was the dot-com bubble when worthless stocks were sold with "knowledge economy" mumbo-jumbo; then there was the subprime mortgage/derivates bubble when mortgages with little hope of repayment were re-packaged to be sold as the safest investment around; what's the biggest Ponzi scheme this time?
