Wow this thread has been interesting. Ill admit, as a Westerner I have the arrogant twinge that say’s, “This is ours now. Thus is the nature of conquest.” I know… it’s shameful… but everyone can have they’re stuff back once Western Civilization collapses. On that note, the concept of “The West” is arrogant as it is. Look at South America and Africa which are both part of the Westen hemisphere but obviously aren’t being referred to by the term.
Where are people getting these notions about insider trading? This has to do with Bloomberg’s news reporters looking at user habits in order to “gain an edge” for investigating stories. Unethical? Yes. Insider trading? Not by a long shot. This has nothing to do with trades or the SEC. The only reason why the Fed’s investigating is because there were allegations that Ben Bernanke’s info was being spied on.
