Developments in the financial sector have led to an expansion in its ability to spread risks. The increase in the risk bearing capacity of economies, as well as in actual risk taking, has led to a range of financial transactions that hitherto were not possible, and has created much greater access to finance for firms and households. On net, this has made the world much better off. Concurrently, however, we have also seen the emergence of a whole range of intermediaries, whose size and appetite for risk may expand over the cycle. Not only can these intermediaries accentuate real fluctuations, they can also leave themselves exposed to certain small probability risks that their own collective behavior makes more likely. As a result, under some conditions, economies may be more exposed to financial-sector-induced turmoil than in the past. The paper discusses the implications for monetary policy and prudential supervision. In particular, it suggests market-friendly policies that would reduce the incentive of intermediary managers to take excessive risk.
SAN DIEGO — The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department will conduct an internal review into the treatment of Occupy San Diego protesters who were arrested during the early morning hours of Oct. 28 and held in custody by the agency, spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said Thursday.
After 34 men and 17 women were detained, they were loaded onto a bus and two vans to be transported to Vista jail and the Las Colinas Detention Facility. The trip took so long that some were forced to “relieve themselves as they sat on the bus or van,” according to a Sheriff’s Department statement.
In the statement, sheriff’s officials conceded that there were no restroom facilities available for the arrestees and said the matter is being “treated seriously.”
One protester, 18-year-old City College student Kevin Rambo, has said that demonstrators were held on a bus for between nine and 12 hours.
“When this was brought to our attention, we acted on it immediately,” Caldwell said. “We decided this Critical Incident Review would be the best way to go over what might not have worked out well. We do appreciate feedback. This is how we can do a better job the next time.”
Eugene Davidovich, an activist who said he was at Civic Center Plaza the night of the arrests but was not arrested, welcomed news of the review. However, he said he would like it to be expanded to include the actions of authorities as the arrests were taking place.
“I think it’s absolutely necessary that a review of the actions of the Sheriff’s (Department) is conducted from that night,” he said. “It’s a good sign, (but) I don’t think it’s enough.”
Ambulances responded to the scene.

Just moments before NBC Bay Area’s Jodi Hernandez was to go on the air with a live report, she reported hearing shots fired at Occupy Oakland.
Hernandez said she heard 6 to 8 gunshots on the south side of Frank Ogawa Plaza followed by screaming from people in the area.
Police were not in the area at the time.
An ambulance arrived at the scene within a few minutes so treat a man who appeared to be the victim of the shooting.
@scott_c_johnson tweeted” “Bystanders weeping, chaos, police everywhere, sirens,”
Hernandez said the mood prior to the gunshots was festive, adding people on the campground were getting ready to have a birthday cake to mark the one month anniversary of the encampment.
NBC Bay Area launched its helicopter and should have pictures from the scene soon.

The police were out in force as thousands of students marched through central London today (Nov. 9th).
Some 4,000 officers were on duty, as demonstrators marched peacefully in a protest against higher tuition fees and “privatisation” in universities.
After the violence of last year’s major fees protest, the police had warned they might use plastic bullets in “extreme circumstances”.
Twenty people have been arrested. A few hundred are still protesting.
Students from Liverpool university told the Guardian they were disappointed at the numbers who turned up for the march, blaming lack of explicit backing from NUS and “intimidation tactics” from police.
Anthony, 19, studying civil engineering, said: “People who were involved in the protests last year were sent letters, police are threatening to use plastic bullets – I think it’s put a lot of people off. But it’s not going to stop us, we are going to keep coming back.”
Earlier at Trafalgar Square police intervened after activists put up 20 tents at the foot of Nelson’s Column. Police in riot gear formed lines to prevent demonstrators making their way around St Paul’s Cathedral where the Occupy London Stock Exchange group set up its camp.
