The finance way to bet is to sell a bond to three people: one provides principal, one takes the interest rate risk, the third takes default risk. You bet the principal. If you lose, the default risk buyer pays. He too can issue a sliced bond so his default risk is covered. Thus the endless cycle continues. You make free bets, as long as you are good at selling sliced up bonds (derivatives).
