Our Experiences

CRITICAL THINKING: the process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to reach an answer or conclusion.

Insights

"...Inside the free market...there might be some authority capable of checking its excess. The rating agencies, in theory, were just such an authority. As securities became more complex, the rating agencies becamse more necessary. Everyone could evaluate a U.S. Treasury Bond; hardly anyone could understand a subprime mortgage-backed CDO. There was a natural role for an independent arbiter to pass judgment on these opaque piles of risky loans...It became clear that everyone was just trusting in the ratings...so they didn't have to think about it."
– Michael Lewis, in The Big Short
