    Between 2005 and 2007, our largest investment banks as a group nearly brought down the entire global economy by betting one-way on an inexorable rise in housing prices, and the capacity of budget-stretched Americans to pay escalating mortgage payments.
     
    Assuming that he knows as much about shale gas, there is no need to read further. This dolt spanking Lewis? Not even funny.
