Thomas Phillipon asks why financial services are so expensive (h/t Tim Noah)

An abstract:

Despite its fast computers and credit derivatives, the current financial system does not seem better at transferring funds from savers to borrowers than the financial system of 1910.

Phillipon notes that while finance has grown rapidly as a share of GDP, stock prices have become no more informative of future cash flows, and risk sharing has not improved.  But as Paul Volker might say, at least we have the ATM now.
