La Commodity Futures Trading Commission a publié le discours de son commiussionnaire Bart Chilton sur la crise et la sortie de crise : "avoidable"
Résumé officiel :
Thank you. It’s good to be with you today. I especially want to thank my friend Richard Sandor for the invitation to spend some time here. You know, he’s pretty modest but he has been a leader in markets and trading for a long time now. He’s not called the “Father of Carbon Trading” and the “Father of Financial Futures” for nothing. He has truly been an innovator and you are lucky to have him. I try to steal his time as much as possible, and always feel smarter after those times.
It’s also good to be in Chicago. It’s my favorite city in the world and if you look across Lake Michigan from here, you can almost see where I grew up in Indiana. On clear nights, we could see the lights of Chicago from our neighborhood. So, for that reason and others, I share with many people a great fondness for this city. Even when the Cubs and the White Sox are doing poorly—like, umm, so far this season—I’m still a fan. Being closer to Comiskey Park when I was a kid, I went to more Sox games, but I followed both teams, even though there has always been a competition between the two. Stop me if you’ve heard this one: A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Cubs fan. She asks the class to raise their hands if they are Cubs fans too. Only one little girl didn't raise her hand, so the teacher asked her why. “I'm proud to be a Chicago White Sox fan," she boasts. The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks the girl why she is a Sox fan. "Well, my Dad and Mom are Sox fans, and I'm a Sox fan too." The teacher is now angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your mom was a moron and your dad was a moron? What would you be then?" A pause and a smile. "Then," says the girl, "I'd be a Cubs fan."
