Paul Wilmott su truffe, onestÓ e schemi Ponzi

Sun 21 Dec 2008, 12:56 AM

Paul Wilmott Ŕ un noto didatta e consulente in materia di modelli quantitativi per i mercati finanziari. Oggi ho trovato per caso nel suo blog una riflessione amara sugli incentivi a comportarsi onestamente nei mercati finanziari
There are honest people, and there are dishonest people, a whole spectrum. I like to think I'm near the honest end, I would have worn a white hat in the old cowboy movies. And I've had the misfortune to have met a few from right up close to the other extreme, with the black hats. Most people wear hats of various shades of grey. High finance is a business which encourages people to shift towards the dishonest end of the spectrum by putting temptation in their way, and the dishonest are drawn to this field by its quick and easy rewards.
Anche i regulators e il sistema giudiziario, a giudizio di Wilmott, non fanno molto per scoraggiare i cattivi comportamenti.

E' questo il problema. I regolatori dormono, dormono, dormono. Anche in Italia !
