Financial landscape changes before overhaul is complete. SEC Anti-Flash Crash Rules in Place any day.
As shared on LinkedIn today, Compliance/Legal/Audit types may very well like a fresh, yet historical take on "the Con" - in the post-bubble. Madoff, Stamford era.
The book "Taking the Conn and Nicking the Con" by John Hauss is so well-written with personal and historical anecdotes - of Cold War Military missions and FBI cases, including many well-known. With interest in these matters you will find a very enjoyable read with a witty perspective.
