rewind2846: FTA: "The hostility toward insider trading is based not on any legal consideration but on a vicious perversion of morality: egalitarianism-the same twisted, envy-ridden idea of morality our President is now promulgating in speeches around the nation."You mean that everyone involved in any business deal should have all the information available for that deal at the same time - a level playing field, if you will? Like how capitalism is supposed to work?What is up with these Randian assholes today?

rev. dave: The author of that article sounds guilty. I bet if you spend 5 minutes looking at his trades you could find a couple felonies.

nmrsnr: The company is decimated
sigdiamond2000: vpb: It's almost like this is a guy with an antisocial personality disorder than an economic theory. i have heard interviews with criminals where they describe their viewpoint and it's very similar.I don't think I've ever met anyone in my life whose world view was entirely informed by a single work of literature that didn't have a personality disorder.Those two things go hand-in-hand.
nmrsnr: This guy cannot be real, right? I mean you can't write this:"Take a worst case scenario: a fire has just broken out in one of the firm's warehouses. Insiders start dumping their stock, selling it to hapless, ignorant outsiders who are about to see their newly bought stock plunge in price. But what is the cause of the stock's fall? The cause is not insider trading, but the fire."And actually mean it. Because that's not even close to the worst case scenario. An obviously worse scenario is a bunch of CEOs shorting their own stock because they have direct control over whether their stock tanks, making a killing by destroying their own company, and walking away. The company is decimated not by accident, not by random act like fire, but because greedy people actively destroyed it for their own gain, putting hard working people out of work. And I'm pretty sure even that's not a worst case scenario, but I didn't want to spend more than a minute on this ridiculous human being.
