Are derivatives still financial weapons of mass destruction?

Professor Adam Zawadowski, Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at CEU

Warren Buffett famously called over-the-counter derivatives "financial weapons of mass destruction” in 2002. During the 2007-08 Financial Crisis, they indeed caused the failure of AIG and thus contributed to the financial meltdown. Since then, derivatives have been heavily regulated and mostly forced onto clearing houses. Are derivatives now safe or are we about to experience an even larger meltdown this time caused by the clearing houses?
