So last week, Washington featured a lot of handwringing, in two separate Congressional panels, about how to convince Average Joe investors that the stock market is their friend – even when it obviously isn’t. And it’s great that elected officials and Wall Street millionaires are talking about investor confidence. But they’re not talking about what really matters: investor protection. Guaranteeing that everyone gets a fair shake. Un-rigging the stock market.
Yet in Congress, the worry is all about appearances.
We’ll stop hearing your lies.
