First, subby, thanks for linking to the mobile version of that, made it much easier to read without all the other crap Vanity Fair usually throws on their pages.

That was a fascinating read into insider trading and how the feds are going after some of the biggest hedge fund traders.  I do think that this sort of insider information has become just a way to do business on Wall Street.  Everyone is always looking for the next big tip and hoping to get away with it because the payoff can be millions of dollars, and tons of prestige.

Today I learned that Rudy Giuliani actually did something in his past that I really liked. He took down a bunch of high profile insider traders.

Interesting read.

Wow, that was a long read, but totally worth it. On paper this is a great story but I bet it makes a terrible movie.

If there are this many instances of insider trading, are there really investment groups who don't partake in this ? Or is there going to be no man standing at the end of these investigations?

To get the job done the FBI dealt not to prosecute many people. That's crap. These people need to be punished too. Sentences of working at McDonald's for the rest of their lives sounds reasonable.
