FSA:: Lord Turner’s "paradise" lost

I’ve never met the man but I like the cut of his jib. Perhaps it is the novelty of someone in high (financial) office admitting what his peers feel they cannot…even though, with brief explanation, a child could differentiate good guys from bad!
Lord Adair Turner, the outgoing chairman of the Financial Services Authority and a candidate for Bank of England governor, said last night the FSA had spent its first eight years in a “fool’s paradise” of delusion about financial risk.
So the problem is pretty well framed and, dare I say, understood. But WHO IS PREPARED TO LISTEN TO POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS OF THE VARIETY ADVOCATED ANDY HALDANE AT BY BANK OF ENGLAND?
