with journalists and academics with professional expertise in the theory and practise of derivative
trading.  The more advanced version reflects, among other ideas, a name change to

Beyond Stress Tests & the Dodd-Frank Bill:
Why a "Calibrateable dsFTT" Makes Sense

Angus operates an executive coaching practice in Toronto with clients who include a manager of
trading with a major Canadian bank.  Educated at Cambridge and Wharton, and a McKinsey
management consulting alumnus, he began his enterprise by leading a team that delivered the
world's first electronic trading system built with open-system components -- to a Toronto-based
bond trading house.  In this paper Angus points out what remains unaddressed, or at least
unfocused, in current regulatory initiatives and proposes a differentiated speculative financial
transactions tax (dsFTT) that will facilitate a healthy coherence between speculative investors
and the needs of the "real" economy.
