I was reading how puzzled experts are over the swings in markets. Felix is the go to guy. We should just have the writers take over for the ratings agencies. They certainly seem to have more talent at untangling the tangled mess and making it understandable. What we seem to have here is a total lack of understanding and no lack of communication. The tools keep getting better, so now we have more tools that better than we are.
