I'm with teh Plinka on this one.

Shortselling is part and parcel of trading unfortunately and it is indeed a dirty risky business.

Hedgefunds thrive on it though. If it wasn't for the fact that lots of pensions, etc are tied up in hedgefunds I'd wholeheartedly support a banning of shortselling

Privately, something close to desperation is starting to develop inside government. After watching the slide in bank shares on Friday, one cabinet minister did not altogether joke when he said: "The banks are fucked, we're fucked, the country's fucked."
