From LaVern F. Isely Monroe Neither political party seems to want to control the hedge fund dealers or the growing $600 trillion toxic derivative market that is worldwide and now affecting Greece and others. Time magazine of May 3 says "Five largest banks control 97 percent of the domestic derivative market" which 18 years ago was only $5 trillion and unregulated, and still is. The attitude of the hedge fund dealers really shows up in the book "The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine" by Michael Lewis.
