"Leopold tells the story of how we fell victim to Wall Street's exotic financial products.." Mr. Leopold is an outstanding author, and his latest book on hedge funds is superlative in nature, and since this book was published in 2009, he most likeley wasn't aware of the naked swaps/infinite insurance swindles going on. Nothing exotic about an unlimited (and that word "unlimited" must be understood) number of insurance policies, or naked swaps [uncovered credit default swaps] bought against various debt and debt vehicles. That's the way they designed it, and that's how the profited from the economic meltdown and the privatization of profits and the socialization of THEIR debt!
