Who is speaking? What ‘idiot woman?’
This quote is by none other than Bernie Madoff. His assessment is of Erin Arvedlund after she had written the first comprehensive review of Madoff’s business in 2001. Ms. Arvedlund seriously questioned the integrity of Madoff’s enterprise. Madoff later admitted he was shocked that the SEC did not follow up on the points raised by Ms. Arvedlund.
Our markets and media are filled with analysts and pundits who are overly qualified in reviewing events after the fact. Where are those who have the insights, intellect, and courage to pursue the story before it breaks? Erin Arvedlund is one of the few who possess those admirable traits.
Sense on Cents looks to pursue truth, transparency, and integrity in our markets and our economy. On that note, I am thrilled as No Quarter Radio’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle Welcomes Erin Arvedlund.
Ms. Arvedlund’s top selling book, Too Good To Be True, provides the most comprehensive review of the entire Madoff fiasco. Let’s learn more about Erin Arvedlund:
Erin Arvedlund began her career as a reporter at Dow Jones newswires in 1993. In 1996, she moved to Moscow to write about business and emerging markets for The Moscow Times. In 1998, she joined TheStreet.com, one of the first real-time news and stock market web sites. She then moved to Barron’s magazine to cover options, mutual funds and hedge funds from 2000-2003. From late 2003 to 2005 Arvedlund reported on business and politics in the former Soviet Union for The New York Times. She also has Wall Street experience, having worked in the hedge fund industry at two separate firms, Vision Opportunity Capital Management and Sanford C. Bernstein. Arvedlund has a B.A. from Tufts University in International Relations and studied abroad for a semester at Leningrad State University in St. Petersburg. She has also freelanced extensively for print and online magazines such as Fortune, Outside, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Portfolio.com, and Slate.com. She is married and divides her time between New York and Philadelphia.
The Madoff investigation is a long way from being over. What about Bernie’s family’s involvement? What about the feeder funds? What about Bernie’s relationships with the regulators, including current SEC Chair Mary Schapiro? What hasn’t been revealed by regulators? What has not been fully exposed of Bernie’s early years in the business?
Please join me Sunday evening from 8-9pm ET as we explore these questions and so much more with Erin Arvedlund. As a preview, here’s a short video clip of Ms. Arvedlund discussing her book. – LD
