Podcast 13, November 2008: Is maths to blame?

Who is to blame for the credit crunch?

According to media reports there are two suspects in the dock: the rocket scientists' (a.k.a. the financial mathematicians) who provided the information behind the market's decisions, or the greedy bankers who only thought about quick profits and their end-of-year bonuses.
