microeconomic crisis

There seem to be a lot of interesting microeconomics issues in the current economic crisis. But there is little discussion of the micro issues, in comparison with the macro ones. For example:

- Why did the financial industry screw up so badly? This can be subdivided into product design, compensation design, financial modeling, risk management, regulation, etc., which all failed. A whole set of long-standing institutions all evolved in bad directions within a few years. The macro cause seems to be a big savings glut from Asia and oil exporters. But why weren't our institutions more resilient on a micro level? Is there any way to improve them to be more resilient in the future?

- During the boom, investors trusted the financial industry a lot more than they should have, at least in hindsight. Why? Why weren't all those flaws visible?

- It seems that some people did notice the flaws, and tried to short the market, but there is so much "dumb money" out there which can easily overwhelm "smart money" on a timescale of years. Is this a problem for decision markets? Why or why not?

And it isn’t simply what's being said in commercials, however who's saying it. Fans have noticed a direct rise within the variety of players signing offers with sportsbooks. The backdrop of Pete Rose and the MLB — the irony that in 1989 the league banned the all-time 메리트카지노 hits chief from the game and Hall of Fame for betting on baseball — has been famous by many. In contrast, BetMGM, FanDuel and DraftKings have spent over $160 million on campaigns in help of Proposition 27, which would legalize cellular sports betting within the state. In the four years that adopted, sports betting grew to become legal and stay in 31 states. Five more states have voted to legalize sports betting, but the legislation has but to take statewide impact.
