Little Carson should have been accurately portrayed as the second coming of Manuel Asensio.
That he wasn't is due to two major reasons: Herb Greenberg and Jim Chanos.
I have not much against the latter - and less against the former than, say, Patrick Byrne does.
But this entire episode in our markets has been clearly the result of the Self-Anointed Ones' overblown hubris. They CANNOT make mistakes - ever. If by some chance they do, they simply have to compound them and compound them, rather than just switching gears like sane people - or sane traders - would do.
