Friday Factory (Financial) Tune: Junk Bond Trader

The Senate returns next week and financial regulation will be on the agenda.  To honor their effort to eliminate risk from the world, we feature PDX’s own Elliott Smith performing “Junk Bond Trader.” Alas, Elliott  failed to adequately regulate himself.

And since we’re straining to be topical, he’s a song that fits now that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and the Legislature just completed a $1 billion state gambling compact with the Seminole Tribe, Warren Zevon performing “Seminole Bingo.” Co-written with Carl Hiaasen. Inspirational quote:

And the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I’m a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo
