Helen Davis Chaitman Reviews In Bed with Wall Street

Posted by Larry Doyle on August 14th, 2014 9:16 AM |

Helen  Davis  ChaitmanI truly appreciate reading the thoughts of highly intelligent professionals. I appreciate even more reading the thoughts of those highly intelligent professionals who stand up and speak out in courageous fashion on the serious issues of the day.

Very few individuals with whom I have crossed paths since launching Sense on Cents in early 2009 embody these character traits more than Helen Davis Chaitman.

Helen Davis Chaitman is a nationally recognized litigator with a diverse trial practice in the areas of lender liability, bankruptcy, bank fraud, RICO, professional malpractice, trusts and estates, and white collar defense. In 1995, Ms. Chaitman was named one of the nation’s top ten litigators by the National Law Journal for a jury verdict she obtained in an accountants’ malpractice case. Since early 2009, Ms. Chaitman has been an outspoken advocate for investors in Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC. She has lobbied in Congress for statutory changes to assure Madoff investors of the protections of the Securities Investor Protection Act.

Ms. Chaitman is truly tireless in fighting for justice and recently launched the site JPMadoff to expose the relationship between JP Morgan and Bernie Madoff that facilitated the perpetration of Wall Street’s largest Ponzi scam.

I am honored that Ms. Chaitman would review my book In Bed with Wall Street. Her review is currently being widely disseminated throughout the blogosphere. I welcome sharing her thoughts here: (more…)

Book Talk: In Bed with Wall Street at New York Public Library, July 31 at 6pm

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 23rd, 2014 11:34 AM |

In late April I had the good fortune to speak to a packed house about my book In Bed with Wall Street at the Boston Public Library, the third largest library — and one of the oldest — in our nation. In early June I was pleased to regale a filled room at the Library of Congress, the largest library in the world, about the exploits and escapades of those ‘in bed with Wall Street.’

Next week I complete the trifecta of the greatest libraries in the land when I talk about my book at the New York Public Library. Details of the talk are as follows:

‘Look Inside’ My Upcoming Book, In Bed with Wall St.

Posted by Larry Doyle on December 4th, 2013 7:21 AM |

IBWWS book jacketIs there any other reason or greater motivation than the virtue of truth for why people ultimately choose to read the material they do? I think not.

Yet all too often the truth is distorted, if not denied, by those who might benefit from seeing that it remains buried. I launched this blog almost 5 years ago in pursuit of the truth and continue to do so today.

On January 7th, I welcome elevating this pursuit of the truth to an entirely new level and a much larger platform. As most who visit here regularly are well aware, on that day my first book, In Bed with Wall Street: The Conspiracy Crippling Our Global Economy, will be published by Palgrave Macmillan.

I am enormously proud of the endorsements the book has received from a number of individuals, including none other than a former assistant Inspector General for Investigations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, David Weber. Additionally, a recent review offered the following:

His deep digging . . . qualifies as investigative journalism, and the scandalous details he recounts are impressive. The author has clearly done his homework while thinking about a reform effort . . . An important book . . .

I recently learned that the book will be named as one of “Ten Books That Matter” by the Project on Government Oversight for its upcoming 2014 Winter Reading List.

I am understandably pleased by all these developments, but the success of this book will ultimately be determined by you the reader. In an attempt to help you gain a greater understanding and appreciation for my pursuit of the truth and “deep digging,” we can now take a ‘look inside’ the book. In doing so, readers can check out the Table of Contents, a selected number of pages from the first 3 chapters, almost all of the 140 plus referenced resources in the Notes, and the Index as well.

Look Inside: In Bed with Wall Street: The Conspiracy Crippling Our Global Economy

The book is available both in hard copy and on Kindle, and can be ordered via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and IndieBound so that it will be delivered to you on the 7th of January.

I hope you will not only want to buy my book, but might also share this post with your family, friends, and colleagues so that they will do so as well. You can rest assured that I am not bashful in revealing details of people and situations from Wall Street to Washington lying ‘in bed’ with each other while the American public across the entire spectrum of our populace has paid and continues to pay a very heavy price.

I thank you for your support.

Larry Doyle

Obama’s Failure to Reform Wall Street: SEC No Evil Recommended

Posted by Larry Doyle on September 26th, 2012 5:51 AM |

While listening to the upcoming Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates and you hear selected politicians make the case that they have reformed Wall Street, I recommend you get yourself a barf bag and think of the story I share with you today.

I introduced readers of this blog to whistleblower and former JP Morgan Chase compliance officer Peter Sivere in early 2010. For those unaware, Mr. Sivere had his identity revealed — that is, his confidence was violated — by an SEC attorney while in the process of blowing the whistle in an after hours trading case ongoing at JP Morgan.

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…)

Taibbi: Wall Street Bribes, Bid-Rigging & Collusion

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 22nd, 2012 2:07 PM |

There are many markets on Wall Street with very serious ethical issues. From my perspective, no market over the last number of decades has been more ethically challenged than the world of municipal finance.

In the spirit of fairness, I would maintain once again that the overwhelming percentage of people on Wall Street in general and municipal finance specifically are very good, decent people. Regrettably, though, the premise of fair and ethical dealings within many markets and certainly municipal finance has gotten so blurred as to be unidentifiable.

In a MUST READ commentary that pulls back the cloak on the bribes, bid-rigging and collusion within the municipal finance markets, Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi provides a chilling look into this corner of Wall Street. (more…)
