Guided tours of toxic assets

tourismI’m on a roll about derivatives at the moment (see Friday’s post on terms, and last Monday’s about cheese as collateral).

I happened upon this Wall Street Journal article about walking tours of the financial centre. You can find out more at The Wall Street Experience website here. Interesting way to change career direction.

Could be a good way to absorb new terminology, for those in New York.

I haven’t called this a Monday smile, though, because the crisis, as we all know, has had terrible consequences, as we can see in this moving TedTalk entitled “What Bernie Madoff couldn’t steal from me“.
