The collaborative effort of the FBI, SEC, and Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office to combat insider trading under a program codenamed Perfect Hedge lands Gordon Gekko as its new public voice. Michael Douglas will reprise his Oscar winning role as the Greed-is-Good fallen symbol in a series of public service announcements sponsored by the FBI aimed at scaring fund managers straight.

    No spokesman will work as a deterrent.

     

    What will work is lots of convictions, confiscation of ill-gotten gains and more, and long stays in prison. And not cushy, rich people prison, but hard, cold, pound em in the [backside] prison.

     

    You can't fight crime when penalties are a slap on the wrist and a fine so small in comparison to the illegal profits that it is equivalent to tipping your waiter.

    Oh, we can't pick on well connected Corzine. The official story now is that they lost track of 1.5B through sloppy bookkeeping, not fraud. So cut a the big shot a break. How could he know his accountants were incompetent? Boy, what B.S.:-(
