Book Description HTML
The world of investing is fascinating and complex, and it can be very fruitful. But unlike the banking world, where deposits are guaranteed by the federal government, stocks, bonds and other securities can lose value. There are no guarantees. That's why investing is not a spectator sport. By far the best way for investors to protect the money they put into the securities markets is to do research and ask questions. This volume explains the creation of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as well as some of the major cases the Commission has had before it in the past.
