Fools rush in
Like most economists, I have not been accustomed to thinking about banking - treating it, like the plumbing system, as something one need not worry about because it always works. But now, some understanding of how it works seems to be necessary for anyone who wants to understand the present crisis.
That is my excuse for rushing in - somebody had to! But it means that I do need the help of an expert in banking to correct my errors of fact and balance. If you are one, please help and please explain your help!

The article is in a bit of a mess in the course of an overhaul that I hope to complete in the next few days. The purpose of the overhaul is to give more weight and clarity to the account of the development of banking regulation. Nick Gardner 17:15, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
