There is a very large problem with our markets that make the current economic downturn pale in comparison to the potential fallout. It is the non-delivery of Short sales (naked short selling), intentional market manipulation, and the lack of enforcement of the laws designed to prevent it from occuring. The above mentioned is a problem to the tone of $300 Million Dollars/DAY (read $78billion/year), being illegally siphoned from retail investors and shareholders (all of us). The article is long (took me three hours to read), but the truth factor is scary. I have discussed the contents with many C-Level executives and they are aware of the problem, but letting Patrick Byrne and Overstock take point on the actions to fix the problem. The research firms and individuals listed are well known within Finance as "sketchy" and few knowlegable investors listen to them, but they are in the minority. Read it, spread the word, pass the link along. Hopefully a grass roots effort to our congressmen can put an end to this and allow us to receive the monies that is rightfully ours. *To the people who start commenting on tinfoil hats, read the article. It might be the last great, investigative journalism piece since Watergate.
