And don’t forget THE LESSON to be learnt! Never ever allow the financial regulators again to empower some few credit agencies to act as risk kommissars and operate with what almost amounts to a risk information monopoly, as this, sooner or later, has to take the world over another precipice. Without the credit rating agencies’ AAAs the absolutely lousily awarded mortgages to the subprime sector would have gone nowhere. Do not lie to yourself about the markets being free. Is a young boy allowed by his father to roam around only in the company of a governess really free? Of course not! In a letter to the Editor of the Financial Times published May 11, 2003 I said “Everyone knows that, sooner or later, the ratings issued by the credit agencies are just a new breed of systemic errors, about to be propagated at modern speeds". Unfortunately the reality was that those who really should know that, the financial regulators, didn’t, and perhaps did not even care about it.
