Let’s do rating!


The other day developed a very stimulating exchange on Twitter after one enthusiast proposed to get into the ratings business. Since the contributions could be a useful addition to my recent pieces on rating agencies (here and here) I would like to share them with you (in reverse order as in my timeline):

As far as I am aware it all started with a simple question from Mike Parker …

In my feeling this is a very rewarding debate which should be continued. How about:
