    A privately held SWAPS market of this much size ($700 trillion) is a risk. The credibility of the market depends upon the performance of the underlying assets and the parties who are transacting. Simply because it is a secret private affair does not mean that credibility is not there. But there should be a sort of regulation and control in such huge markets because if anything adverse happens, it spreads like a contagion and precipitates a parallel economic crisis in which those not involved in the deal are also affected very much.

    So, to understand, I need to ask;
    Is it the mere size that troubles you? The "Secret Private affairs" you mention; Is there reasonable transparency?
    Are there sufficient "Underlying Assets", actual Capital requirements, to ensure averting a systemic failure?
    $700 Trillion, whats that like the value of the U.S.A.?
