Warren says: "Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful."

Isn't that derivative thought? Isn't that a huge part of the philosophy behind derivitive markets, and the mess we are in?

He may be rich and might get richer, but is he really part a solution, or a clue as to the root problem?
