This aspect of FraudStreet has been discussed for years, but because the market
was run on fraud[*] and was therefore surging, nobody seemed to bother and

Robert Bach, a vice president from Microsoft, got busted for inside-trading as
well. The toothless tiger called the SEC didn't bother doing anything. It
never does, even after a Microsoft insider blew the whistle on his company's
fraud, which a judge could confirm had enough evidence to have the case
proceed. Microsoft bribed this insider $4 million to drop the case and destroy
the evidence. This guy, Charlie, is still in Washington area (art galleries
and all). The SEC also let SCO off the hook before the surprising Chapter 11
and it let NOVL off the hooks despite admission of misconduct (as said
privately to Matt Asay).

We live in interesting times. And with 10.2 trillion in debt and sagging market
caps of _KEY_ companies (assets), I think China will soon rise.
