Gillian Tett, worry less about grey-hair’s casinos and much more about your young’s bank regulators manipulated ones.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
Sir, Gillian Tett, as she should, becomes depressed when she ends up at an Atlantic City casino that “looked more like an electronic opium den for senior citizen.” “The rise of the silver slotter leaves me with a sour taste” October 29.
But, unless there is fraud, each one of those bets at the Atlantic City casino, has exactly the same expected pay out; namely a slight negative value because of the houses wins, like that when a zero comes up on the roulette. The cost of entertainment.
But out there in the other world, in the Main-Street, regulators have told banks that if they play it safe, like on black or read, like on sovereigns, AAA rated, or financing residential houses, they will earn much higher (expected) returns on equity, than if they bet on risky SMEs or entrepreneurs.
That, if Gillian Tett is concerned about the future of her children and grandchildren, should depress her much more.
Sir, I assure you that what the Basel Committee has done to the grey haired future of my children and grand children, leaves me with a much more sour taste than thousands of Atlantic City casinos.
