Wall-Street business models

Some excellent metaphors for explaining some Wall-Street business models:

  • Arsonist/Fireman (AIG): You get paid to start the fire, then you get paid even more to stop it. Video
  • Arsonist with fire insurance (Goldman): You make sure you’ll get paid when your house burns, then you burn it down. Document

The two can work together very well.
