While it is true that a stunning combination of greed and stupidity nearly destroyed it in 2008, the system, with massive government intervention, survived and flourished again.Unfortunately, while we may have learned some of the lessons of 2008 (namely don’t allow Wall Street to create billions of mis-rated bonds and billions of derivatives tied to poorly underwritten loans), the COVID-19 crisis is showing that we didn’t learn everything.
