Start doing your jobs

the retail investor deserves better. The hedge funds need regulation, and the practice commonly call naked short selling is only possible because of the lack of enforcement.

The economy and markets as we know them are on the verge of collapse. No one will ever trust the system until this is fixed. If you want all the money currently in the market to disappear under mattresses keep ignoring this issue.
The cat is out of the bag.

Prove that government is based on service and ethics not greed and private agendas.
