For those who pay attention only to their RSS feeds, the Salon Books section today features an interview I conducted with Richard Bookstaber, author of "A Demon of Our Own Design: Markets, Hedge Funds, and the Perils of Financial Innovation." With Bear-Stearns and Morgan Stanley reporting their first ever quarterly losses this week, Bookstaber's comments are timely.
