Jim is pleased to welcome back Professor William Black to the program. Professor Black discusses the "reinvention" of crony capitalism and notes that accounting is now the weapon of choice for fraud. He also discusses the concentration of derivative positions, and notes that five large banks account for 90% of derivatives. As to where the regulators are in this financial crisis, Professor Black says they are both absent and bought.
