In a new CEPS Commentary, Paul De Grauwe takes rating agencies to task for having systematically rewarded companies for taking too much risk in the past and for punishing companies today for taking too little, thereby exacerbating the financial crisis. The author is Professor of Economics at the University of Leuven and Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for European Policy Studies.
