I was thinking insider trading by the CEO and other officers of the company should be illegal. But I have reconsidered. It should all be legal. Let the market price a companies willingness to be transparent and fair to all investors into its stock price. People certainly should invest in stocks, but over the long term. http://stockcharts.com/freecharts/historical/djia19802000.html That negates any advantages of insider trading. With all the ways to get information nowadays and the many sophisticated investors I don't see the gain from laws that are supposed to protect investors. Anything that lessens the power of central governments should be seriously considered.
