In Bed with Wall Street: Book Talk at Library of Congress

Posted by Larry Doyle on November 5th, 2014 11:28 AM |

America awakes this morning to a Republican wave breaking over Washington and coursing across our nation. While some may view yesterday’s election results as simply a stamp of approval of “right vs left”, I think the nation as a whole said something far more meaningful than that. I believe a significant percentage of voters tried to send a message to Washington and their state capitols of “right vs wrong.”

In an attempt to echo those who voted for “right vs wrong,” I welcome submitting my book talk given a few months ago but just posted this morning on the Library of Congress’ website.

Future generations are counting on us to stand up and speak out against corruption and crony-style politics. We need to hold those charged with protecting the public interest to proper account. To that end, I hope those who will view this clip will also share it with others. I get very specific in terms of exposing real corruption, naming names, and proposing reforms.


(If you find the volume on the clip not to be strong enough, I encourage you to utilize the closed captioned (cc) button in the lower right of the clip accessed at the library’s website, the link to which is below the first paragraph above, so as to visualize the spoken words, especially during the Q/A segment.)

Navigate accordingly.

Preparation for My Talk at the Library of Congress

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 4th, 2014 11:30 AM |

In preparation for my talk tomorrow at the Library of Congress, I thought I would gather some quotes from my book to share with those in attendance regarding shortcomings and failures within our financial regulatory system.

Some in the audience may think these quotes are evidence of meaningful corruption.

I would concur.

pg 105, Attorney Richard Greenfield

“We were able to get discovery, that is document presentation from the NASD (FINRA), very early on. Many of these documents were produced under a confidentiality order; in other words, the NASD wouldn’t produce them unless they could be kept confidential, i.e not in the public record. These documents showed unequivocally that the NASD defendants lied to the members of the NASD. Blatantly, unequivocally, you can’t put any coloration on it, you can’t say they were negligent. They intentionally lied. The lies are repeated over and over in a proxy statement. They are repeated in road shows taken all around the country.” (more…)

Book Talk: In Bed with Wall Street at Library of Congress, June 5th

Posted by Larry Doyle on May 24th, 2014 12:28 PM |

For those in and around the metro Washington DC area, I hope you might be able to join me on June 5th when I speak about my book, In Bed with Wall Street: The Conspiracy Crippling Our Global Economy, at the Library of Congress.

The Library of Congress happens to be the largest library in the world. That said, as I have only half-kiddingly told friends about this speaking engagement, I feel like my book talk at the LoC is the equivalent of going into the reading room next to the master bedroom and revealing a host of illicit behaviors of the masters of the house.

How so? Recent reviewers have shared the following impressions regarding the financial-political-regulatory menage-a-trois exposed within the pages of my book:

“If you think Flash Boys was explosive, In Bed with Wall Street is downright nuclear.”  (more…)
