Warning: Imposters Masquerading As CDS Experts

We’ve asked for readers that know a lot about the CDS market to weigh in on how much we could potentially lose by bailing out AIG. It’s already generated a nice discussion. But we must be vigilant about impsters. It seems there was a recent episode of the popular NPR radio show This American Life all about the CDS market. Not surprisingly, everyone who listened to it now fashions themselves an expert in this area.

Can anyone recommend a good shibboleth we can use for weading these people out? Put it in the comments.
