Wall Street tries to make credit default swaps out to be some very complicated financial instrument that only high level mathematicians can understand.  Actually, the only thing complicated about CDS is the mathematical computations used to determine their value so the unsuspecting buyer can't figure out whether they are getting hosed or not.  In truth, a CDS is simply an insurance policy.....generally insuring whether the underlying debt will default triggering payment.  [more]
