In Britain, Libor-Rigging Conspiracy Case Is Also a Test for Regulators

In Britain, Libor-Rigging Conspiracy Case Is Also a Test for Regulators | Investment Research from Behind the Balance Sheet | Scoop.it
The investigation into the rigging of global benchmark interest rates at last yields a trial, which may also prove a measure of British controls on the finance industry.

Investors Europe Stock Brokers's curator insight, May 27, 2015 11:19 AM

The trial will be a test for Britain’s Serious Fraud Office, which has suffered many setbacks and is often criticized in the United States for being less aggressive than the Justice Department.

In fact, the case almost did not happen because the prosecutor was not interested. In 2011, the Financial Conduct Authority passed evidence related to its Libor investigation to the Serious Fraud Office. The head of the office declined to pursue it.

After Barclays paid more than $450 million in fines to British and United States regulators in June 2012, the chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, told the fraud office to reconsider. Now, 80 people are on the case, and David Green, the new head of the office, has made it clear that this trial is critical to the future success of the agency.

“When David Green came into office, he staked his reputation within the Serious Fraud Office on the success or otherwise on the investigation into Libor,” said Barry Vitou, head of corporate crime and investigations at Pinsent Masons, a British law firm.

Virtual Competition — Ariel Ezrachi, Maurice E. Stucke | Harvard University Press | Investment Research from Behind the Balance Sheet | Scoop.it
Ariel Ezrachi and Maurice Stucke take a hard look at today's app-assisted paradise of digital shopping. The algorithms and data-crunching that make online purchasing so convenient are also changing the nature of the market by shifting power into the hands of the few, with risks to competition, our democratic ideals, and our overall well-being.

Humiliated McDonalds To Stop Reporting Monthly Sales | Zero Hedge | Investment Research from Behind the Balance Sheet | Scoop.it
What do you do when month after month you have nothing but bad data to report. Simple: you have two choice - you either seasonally adjust the data (or in the case of US GDP, double-seasonally adjust it), or if that is not possible since unlike US GDP, your numbers are at least somewhat indicative of underlying reality, you stop reporting them altogether.
