Tonight on Frontline: To Catch a Trader.

FRONTLINE correspondent Martin Smith goes inside the government’s ongoing, seven-year crackdown on insider trading, drawing on exclusively-obtained video of hedge fund titan Steven A. Cohen, incriminating FBI wiretaps of other traders, and interviews with both Wall Street and Justice Department insiders.

    Just watched it tonight. In a word, disgusting.

    How the rich, the arrogant, the powerful, the corrupt, bypass the justice system in America.

    I suppose we’ll have to let God deal with Mr. Cohen. Have faith everyone.

    So now we know how the system is rigged in the equities market. Every possible source of ‘edge’ is systematically infiltrated. Payola spread around like peanut butter so nothing is missed. Cohen will probably walk and it is very evident he has no shame. This is orders of magnitude worse then anything Milken ever did. Is it any wonder why the Tax code favors Hedge Funds?

    The real patriots doing God’s work are those dedicated to rooting out the crooks. The elite B schools need much more than ethics courses.

    watched too .. but kept lose’g interest
    was reminding myself of the DualSuperNovas concept and how we need to terminate the Stock Market and goto a SingleNova Everyones Cash Certificate – where everyone borrows big & small and the mechanism isn’t as complicated … we are here because the stock certificate successfully squeezed out the cash borrowing system

    of the 4 Estates – the 2nd Nobility Estate of TBTF Banker, Super Merchant, Government Judicial Law Bar all see activity and growth from this corrupt operating system
    the 3rd Estate Commoners pay the price – the 4th Estate Press is a Super Merchant and thats my pov in the 3rd/5th Estate

    remiss to not add – the congomerates buy each other higher with nearly free borrowed money from the FED (.25 of 1%) as regularFolks sell ownership to live on .. then their nearly private corporation may be a SingleEntity2ndEstate of TBTF Banks
