    Now, about those unproductive derivatives?

    They all have their uses as investments, but others can be used for gambling which is equivalent to short selling. Forward swaps, Options and Futures can be invested in this way. No policy is really required to ensure people make money from this. If these investments don't pan out, the investor can loss alot of money.

    Banks need capital to make loans. They're going to do this without deposits?

    Whose sock is this?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    She's not a sock puppet, I know her from another message board
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Ahhh, well she certainly didn't live up to my expectations to say the least.
