  • “The beams are creaking. Plaster is falling from the ceiling. The cracks in the walls are widening. The entire edifice of wholesale financial markets is under the greatest strain in years. No one any more believes the soothing noises from the builders (aka investment bankers), who say the worst will soon be over. The Federal Reserve’s drastic cuts in interest rates amount to little more than a bit of cosmetic repointing.
