The Forum is Alive and Well

This, not so little, chat group is still going at it. Care to join us? email bartreitz@fuse.net. I'll add you. For now, consider the current topic, The Flash Boys, Michael Lewis '82 new book introduces some new technology that is operating in the market. Here was the invitation;subject, a better exchange:

I read with interest David Brooks op-ed piece in the Times, The Moral Power of Curiosity. It was about Michael Lewis’ new book, "Flash Boys.” I want to read this, having enjoyed (?) his previous bestsellers. The new book, like "The Big Short” focuses on a few insiders who figure out how things are working on Wall Street (or not). In "Flash Boys” one of the good guys, Brad Katsuyama decides to design an exchange where "market rigging” would not work. Why didn’t he shut up and make money like so many others? Wasn’t it all legal?


My question for the Forum: why doesn’t Congress immediately pass a few laws which will support such an Exchange?


Here is the follow-up by Forum members.
