Sense on Cents Interview in The Register

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 7, 2012 8:06 AM |

I was recently interviewed by the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) for its June publication of The Register.

As a taste of what I have to say in this hard hitting interview, I offer:

I strongly believe that a self-regulatory organization possessing absolute immunity but without total transparency and real independent oversight is little more than a license to steal.  

I conclude by stating:

I would like to leave your readers with one final thought. Wall Street is a great industry filled with many people of high caliber and character. The flow of capital and ideas are critically important to the well-being of our economy and nation. This said, those running Wall Street and their counterparts in Washington had better appreciate that the heart of the financial services industry is investor education and investor protection. If they continue to shortchange investors on both these fronts, our economic future and national well-being will also be shortchanged as well.

For those interested in all my thoughts on the dynamic at play on Wall Street and in Washington, key issues facing our nation, and more, I welcome attaching the link to the interview which begins on page 15 of the magazine. (When you open the link you will need to enlarge your screen to read the interview or anything else in the magazine.)

I hope readers will share this story and link with your family, friends, and colleagues.

Thoughts and comments always appreciated.

    Everyday, in so many ways, I am reminded that our leaders have failed us. Every so often Larry Doyle publishes on his site and I get a renewed sense of hope. I worked with LD for many years and have never met a more honest person. I’d love to see him drop the pom poms, get in the game and run for elected office. Read on. And subscribe.

    Have been trying to make this point for years. What do these idiots think brings capital to US? The knowledge that legal arrangements will be honored; pricing will be transparent etc..

    The Dimon-Bloomberg theory that we need to become more crooked to retain our place as the center of gravity is idiotic! Look how Bloomberg made his money!

  • Great interview, Larry.

    Good read, LD…I agree and believe that over 90% of the folks working on Wall Street are high caliber/hard working folks who have a sense of proper ethics…perhaps the same should be said of the regulators…unfortunately, it is the ten percent, who usually are in leadership positions, that abuse their power and position. One only has to take a look at the pathetic state of our national mortgage policy, at the gridlock related to the next phase of the GSE conservatorship, at the poor appointments to leadership positions therein, at the intramural sniping among the FHFA/the administration, the Treasury, the OCC et al – and guess who is paying the bill for all this incompetence, mediocrity, self-dealing, and inertia – the taxpayers – that’s who

    Fantastic article and may I add you are looking very Presidential. One day there will be a Sense on Cents Party!

    Doyle keeps up the drum beat for needed reforms when major organs are silent or diverted.

    We need his voice amplified.
