    Art of the scam

    Financial scammers are all around us. The bottom feeders peddle phoney securities to unsuspecting chumps. Guys like the ones in the book are far more dangerous, engaging in insider trading (the ‘black edge’) to earn obscene returns. This book highlights the efforts of one firm, SAC and its leader Stephen Cohen, who miraculously made money under all conditions because they trafficked in insider information which they obtained in a variety of surreptitious ways. Despite the efforts of the US department of Justice and the SEC it was very hard to build cases against these guys who can afford the very best legal talent to defend themselves. Many such cases then get thrown out on appeal. It’s little wonder the forces of justice feels the cards are stacked against them. The book implies that many more of these abuses will come as the financial system becomes more complex, and with a current administration less interested in combatting the excesses of Wall Street. Its little wonder that the average person has lost faith in Wall Street when its major players hold all the cards and get away with fines they can well afford to pay.
