Obama’s Failure to Reform Wall Street: “The Letter”

Posted by Larry Doyle on September 27th, 2012 7:20 AM |

Yesterday’s commentary addressing the gross injustice of an SEC attorney walking away largely unscathed after having blown the cover of a whistleblower resonated far and wide. What is it about this story of the whistleblower Peter Sivere having his confidence violated that consumes me and strikes right at the core of America?

Going on three years later Sivere and America still wait for the SEC to make proper amends in his case. Why is that fact and this case so important?  (more…)

I have crossed paths with some exceptionally interesting people while navigating our economic landscape and writing Sense on Cents over the last few years. These individuals encompass a wide swath of our American population and include investors, economists, lawyers, consumers, small businesspeople, bankers, students, and so many more.

While I admire and respect most of the people with whom I interact, there are a handful who truly occupy a very special place in my heart and in the Sense on Cents Hall of Fame. Who are these people whom I consider true American heroes?  (more…)
