It would be unfair and mean spirited to sell a given item to anyone without disclosure. We also need disclosure in our stock markets. Without this information individuals, like myself, feel less secure in our decision making and tend to participate less often or to a lesser degree of activity and/or volume.

Prohibiting disclosure of information restricts all companies from profiting to their potential due to a reluctance factor based on incomplete information.

Less information = less revenue

More information = more revenue.
