David Brooks must be listening

David Brooks appears to have jumped aboard the meaning-making model of the world. In his analysis of the market collapse he talks about how the collective perception (meaning-making) that happened in wall-street failed to recognize what in retrospect might have seemed like a set of very obvious conclusions about risks in the financial market. It was not according to Brooks a problem of analsysis, it was a problem of perception.
