“We can draw some lessons from this crisis,” French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde told lawmakers in Paris on Feb. 17...“We should examine the suitability of CDSs” used for sovereign states because their movements have become “disconnected from the underlying” economic situation.

Germany and France, the euro area’s two biggest economies, are already working on an overhaul of banking laws as part of a regulatory push agreed by Group of 20 governments after they were forced to bail out banks worldwide.
