NASHVILLE, TN – If you think the new laws, designed to protect investors after the 2008 stock market crash, have made it a safer place to invest your money, you’d be very wrong. Scandals come to light weekly in case after case of corporate greed overtaking a firm’s values as they raid what should have been the sanctity of client accounts. Mass media outlet coverage is usually too focused on the scandal of the moment, financial or otherwise, leaving few places where financial advisors can find unbiased coverage of Wall Street; Checks & Balances TV stands alone as an unwavering source of financial truth.
Former Treasury Secretary, Paul Volker, in a scathing indictment of Wall Street greed entitled, “Take on the Street,” quoted the head of a major wirehouse as saying he “wouldn’t send his mother” to work with his own firm. And this isn’t anything new. The New York Daily News recently reported: “Over the years, Wall Street has seen its share of miscreants, from Jay Gould to Bernie Madoff. During the high-tech bubble of the late 1990s, New York's five Mafia families realized they could steal just as easily from investors as they could from the carting industry or the Fulton Fish Market. Utilizing a time-honored "pump and dump" scam, the mob came to Wall Street and walked away with millions.”
