isda’s new blog September 27, 2011Posted by Bradley in : transparency , trackback
ISDA has a new blog which
will comment on mainstream business and financial media coverage of the derivatives industry. Our hope is that media.comment will help lead to a more informed debate and understanding of the OTC derivatives markets for all our audiences.
Why a blog format rather than (or in addition to) press releases? Who do they hope to reach this way? And of course the aim is rather to influence views about derivatives rather than to produce a more informed debate. On the subject of what losses may eventuate in CDSs on European sovereign debt there’s something of a contrast between the first post on this ISDA blog and this (much more complex and nuanced) posting by Tyler Durden at zerohedge.
