7. The Crime is that they allow derivatives to continue...

...these are so easily rigged and manipulated, which is why they were created in the first place. And did I mention (like for the 19th time) that derivatives are and have been UNREGULATED since allowed to be used as financial "instruments"? These derivatives run right through the middle of the current economic fiasco we are in. They seem to have been created for this exact effect.
