A Suicide on Wall Street -- and -- The Human Factor on Wall Street

June 15, 2018

In response to reader comments and suggestions, the BrokeAndBroker.com Blog re-posts the last two days' articles:

GUEST BLOG: A Suicide On Wall Street (BrokeAndBroker.com Blog) 
Today's BrokeAndBroker.com Blog presents a "Guest Blog" reprinted from an email, which was sent to us by an individual who prefers to maintain his anonymity and has asked to be known only as "A Former NASD Employee." It is a powerful and heart-wrenching story about a former regulator who became an industry compliance officer. Tomorrow, our publisher Bill Singer will offer his comments. For today, we let the email speak for itself.

The Human Factor On Wall Street (BrokeAndBroker.com Blog)
"A Former NASD Employee" shoves our faces in the toilet bowl and makes us hold our breath as we struggle. It's not a pretty picture. We have an industry where good people often find themselves at bad firms. Some say that's part of the problem. Good folks shouldn't work at bad firms. Good folks shouldn't rationalize how they are furthering fraud. Good folks shouldn't prop up dishonest firms and low-life stockbrokers.
