    Pop quiz hotshot – there’s a loaded gun pointed right at interbank liquidity.  If you ban CDS, you get no growth.  If you let them run wild, you have a banking crisis.  What do you do? What do you do?

Jean-Claude Trichet: We gotta cut the tape. Ben Bernanke: Shut up! Jean-Claude Trichet: Pull all together, okay? Off the bed then like maybe we can get what’s under the bed. Ben Bernanke: Under my bed? What’s under my bed? Jean-Claude Trichet: Your bong. We can break it. Ben Bernanke: What? Have you been sneaking in my room?

    More an excuse to contextualize a classic movie scene than an existential exercise in financial regulatory policy.  But thanks for weighing in.

    I’d like to debate this further.  Meet me at the Port Authority bus station.  I’ll be the one diffusing the bomb.  Hold up a picture of Sandra Bullock so I know it’s you.
