ARTicles: Derivatives for Dummies (Oh, and Journalists), 2nd Ed

Second Edition. Now available as e-Book (free delivery) or hard copy, see details and specials at TG2 e-Books or contact TG2Books@arbitrage-trading.com.

This monographs targets layman and journalists, to provide a clear down-to-earth explanation of the workings of the derivatives markets. In addition to trading and industry practices, the purpose and essence of IR Swaps, Mortgage Backed Securities, Credit Default Swaps, Collateral Debt Obligations, etc are explained in simple terms understandable by anyone, and especially if you have ever had a loan or a mortgage.

There is not a single mathematical equation in sight.

The motivation for this document was the considerable nonsense in the main-stream media regarding bankers and derivatives. In many cases, the rhetoric is not only fallacious, but also manipulation in attempts to promote political ideology, and to deceive the public of the true culprits/causes.

The document also provides an account of the financial markets "melt-down" of 2008 with hard data that shows the primary cause of the melt-down was the US Government and its agents (the GSE's Fannie, Freddie, et al). While bankers have a share of the blame, their contribution is seen as primarily that of "speed" of collapse. The primary issues is the US Government's 1.9 Trillion dollar "shadow bail-out" of the GSE's and the effective cover-up of the US Government's culpability in the melt-down due their 7 Trillion dollar over-supply of the sub-prime mortgage markets, and the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act.

The politicians' trick of "Wall Street bashing", who by early 2010 had paid-back 100% of the value of TARP, cleverly diverts the public's attention away from discovering the 1.9 Trillion (just by early 2010) used to "bail-out the Government" by "quietly" printing money (and a lot of it).

A full and detailed account of the melt-down is provided in another monograph found in Greed is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
