1873 And All That

It is frequently pointed out that it is considered scandalous if someone doesn't know Shakespeare, but it is quite acceptable to say "I was never any good at maths". In fact it seems that people do in fact understand game theory as they move their money around to keep within the confines of the FSCS. (Or maybe they aren't, depending on who you believe).

Other interesting articles: dilbert_blog refered to this New York Times article for anyone who might want to understand what happens if there is no US bailout ... and kharin, bless him, tells me the current situation is nothing like 1929. It is like 1873.
