This is exactly at the bottom of corruption and of our economic downfall.
Then we must shut down all the Wall Streets. Most of us will not miss them as they have robbed us all of our money and now have gotten us into a huge debt.
I’m sure there are other more productive & honest ways of running a financial system.

Who cares?

The real crimes are not being prosecuted, or even investigated. The statute of limitations is running out on the financial crimes that caused the Great Crash, stealing trillions.

I believe the position take in this article is overly simplistic. Laws against insider trading and the social barriers to it are enough. A world government cannot regulate every aspect of human behavior. Asking world governments to ‘tackle’ this issue is like having them meet together to stop bank robberies. It is enough they cannot control their own borders – now you want them to control what is by definition secretive and conducted by individuals?

But even with so much media reporting and exposing of WS corruption not much is being accomplished in solving the problem.
I would like to see at the end of these reports some equally good reporting on how the average investor can take real action, like which investment firms operate with a good sense of ethics. Don’t tell me there aren’t any.
