I owned a small brokerage firm for 25 years. We had a PhD professor of economics at Washington University as one of our bigger clients. He lived his later years in his native Taiwan but traded with us in the USA. During one of his many visits to the US I asked him why he didn’t trade stocks in Taiwan. He said because their market was corrupt. If we did not have the SEC, FBI and NASD doing the jobs they do for us investors we would be saying the same thing about Wall Street albeit they certainly are no saints even with all that scrutiny.

The mislabeled fish was sold to schools. Now from the information from the below article it looks we are being “fed” mislabeled fish. Not a good thing if you trying to eat certain fish for their specific attributes.
