The Misguided Attack on Derivatives -
APRIL 26, 2010 | Wall Street Journal | By L. GORDON CROVITZ.
Short-selling warns markets that an asset bubble is about to burst.
Easy money, easy mortgages, and banks too big to fail were key causes of
the credit crisis. It was also Wall Street's greatest information
failure in many years. We need more trading, not less, and more signals
in the market faster that prices need to be adjusted. The last thing we
need is outlawing opportunities for people like Mr. Paulson to bring
vital information to market.

Letters ot the Editor: We Should All Thank John Paulson -
APRIL 23, 2010 | Wall Street Journal | Tim Montag. "The real
irony in this whole episode is that Mr. Paulson's act of synthetically
shorting collateralized debt obligations of subprime bonds prevented the
housing bubble from growing further than it did. By shorting through
CDOs he created more bonds to satisfy the market demand for subprime
bonds without having to make any actual real loans. Think about that for
a minute. No matter how many bad loans were given out during the boom,
the bond market wanted more than could be produced. If those loans were
made to satisfy investors' demand, the housing bubble most likely would
have been perpetuated for years and the ultimate crash would have been
far more devastating for homeowners and investors."
