Did you know that the Wall Street Journal has a life & culture section that actually has an entire area devoted to fashion. Yes, it is true. You can find fashion news from the Wall Street Journal fashion section.
If you listen to the radio (AM radio in New York), I would suggest that you listen to Bloomberg Radio. Tom Keen and Ken Prewitt are amazing. In all honesty, I am not sure how two people can store so much information in their brains. Maybe the almighty gave Tom an enormous brain to help make up for his lack of radio voice. Scratchy voice or not, Tom Keen is more then worth the listen. You may also enjoy listing to Michael McKee and Sara Eisen. By the way, I apoligize if they are no longer broadcasting. I have written this message October 2011. It is possible that it is already the year 3030 by the time you find my comments.
If you work on Wall Street, you may know, "A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing." OK, I think you may understand that I was not indicating that all stockbrokers are guilty. The above quote you most likely figured out is in reference to the 1987 "movie" Wall Street.
Who say's Wall Street is Corrupt (I know who)? Well, I find it pretty amazing that The Wall Street Journal currently (as of October 2011) has an entire section on their website devoted to commentary and news about money laundering, bribery, terrorism finance and sanctions. The section is called Corruption Currents. It is probably fair to say that they will always have something to write about.
It is important to keep in mind that the financial industry does not only have potential corruption. The industry also does good for society. Keep in mind that a great deal of philanthropy comes from the financial sector.
To help support investor education, the SEC offers the public a wealth of educational information on this Internet website, which also includes the EDGAR database of disclosure documents that public companies are required to file with the Commission.
EDGAR, the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system, performs automated collection, validation, indexing, acceptance, and forwarding of submissions by companies and others who are required by law to file forms with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Its primary purpose is to increase the efficiency and fairness of the securities market for the benefit of investors, corporations, and the economy by accelerating the receipt, acceptance, dissemination, and analysis of time-sensitive corporate information filed with the agency. Not all documents filed with the Commission by public companies will be available on EDGAR. Companies were phased in to EDGAR filing over a three-year period, ending May 6, 1996. As of that date, all public domestic companies were required to make their filings on EDGAR, except for filings made in paper because of a hardship exemption. Third-party filings with respect to these companies, such as tender offers and Schedules 13D, are also filed on EDGAR.
