Wall Street’s Top Strategy: Besiege The Regulators

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 25th, 2013 8:27 AM |

Everyday we hear of a new recommended strategy put forth by analysts on Wall Street.

This letter is comprehensive in addressing a number of critically important points. Do you ever wish that we could have representatives from these organizations questioning not only our elected officials, but also our appointed officials such as Mary Schapiro? I wish that all the time. Please take a few minutes to ponder the issues embedded in this letter. Ask yourself whom you really believe are protecting your interests.
