Economics of Contempt

"Economics of Contempt is a pseudonym of a structured finance lawyer in New York. He had taken a two year break from all finance-related law, but Lehman's failure put an end to that gravy train. He seems to spend most of his time in airports though. Especially LaGuardia. Which was fine until a plane leaving LaGuardia crash-landed in the Hudson. Now he freaks out every time he hits turbulence. When he's not fearing for his life or billing hours to financial institutions of questionable solvency, he likes to blog about financial markets, economic policy, or whatever else strikes his fancy."
