promoting retail investor voice? June 13, 2012Posted by Bradley in : financial regulation , trackback
The participation of retail investors in our capital markets is crucial to our country’s economic success.

Accordingly, I urge the IAC to put individual retail investors foremost in its considerations.
It will be interesting to see what this committee does. Meanwhile, Occupy the SEC suggested some tough questions the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs might ask Jamie Dimon at its hearing today.
