Reminds me of the story about a group of people who were trading in boxes of herring. One of them opened a box & complained the fish were bad - reply was "they are for trading not consuming".
Perhaps it was Swedish pickled herrings?

Just a thought from an ignoramous, perhaps banks have stopped selling cos they've not got any left to sell. Seems to be a silver bullet at the moment, excuse the metaphor, so surely it's bound to collapse. As I understand it, in dynamic systems containing masses of autonomous agents, increases in volatility precipitate huge changes. Could be markets, traffic jams or changes in states, i.e. liquid to gas or superfluid or something. Something to do with random walks I think, anyway the game theory stuff all made sense to me at the time.
