The global financial crisis that began in August 2007 and reached full force in 2008 resulted from a massive, unavoidable cognitive mistake on the part of regulators and bankers. It is now 10 years later, and few are willing to admit this fact, let alone explore appropriate remedies.

In fact, the opposite has happened: Regulators have piled on ever-more complex rules, and too-big-to-fail banks have become still bigger. Even worse, the wrong-headed response to the crisis threatens not just the financial sector but open societies generally.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
