Professor Stephen Bainbridge Engages in Debate with Former SEC Chairman Harvey Pitt on Insider Trading in The Economist


May 2, 2012 – Professor Stephen Bainbridge participates in an online debate with former SEC Chairman Harvey Pitt on the crackdown on insider trading for The Economist.

Bainbridge argues, “By pursuing a strong equal-access standard in which information must be available to the public before it can be used by traders, the crusade by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Department of Justice prosecutors is inconsistent with Mr Powell's endorsement of market analysts' work.”
