Somehow, the more I try to learn about the financial and money system, the more I am reminded of 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell! And I am NOT a dystopian by any stretch.

someone once told me that there are flaws in every system and it seems capitalism is just one of them!

I think this is a growing concern. Securities and stocks are big money and people are increasingly becoming aware of the flaws in the system. Or at least they seem to believe there are loopholes. I am tired of the entire financial and monetary system, if you ask me honestly!

Actually, a lot of news headlines do use 'Man' as the common noun for the subject. We dont tend to give it much attention, do we? Why harp upon it, if Mark used 'woman' ?

My headline is bad. The corruption in the industry is worse. I am tired of the insider trading schemes, stock option scandals, etc. Is anyone else tired too?

The real question is how she was able to get inside financial information about multiple companies. Her own company, sure, but where did she get the information about the other companies?

may be this is one rare case where women were never found stealing insider trade information and then selling it for such huge money. well its money that makes human to commit mistake and then it doesnt matter whether its a man or woman.

Who cares whether it's a women or a man? Why does it have have to put it in a bold headline that the person charged is a woman? As if it makes a difference if it was a man.
