If it hits the fan, will the central banks be there for each other? Lehman will look like a walk in the park compared to Deutsche Bank (whose derivatves are a multiple to Lehman's) if they are not very proactive with solutions. My guess is any cohesiveness is at a all-time low  Do we, as investors, want to take much risk at 25x GAAP and 19x non-GAAP earnings at a time in which the spread between GAAP and non-GAAP has never been wider?   And when political and geopolitical risks annd uncertainties have never been as pronounced?   I don't, and I raised my net short exposure to medium-sized today.
