Insider Trading questions.

by crowsfoot / March 30, 2004 6:53 AM PST

If you happen on to some questionable information, and abuse it according to OUR laws. And if your stock transactions are through the Nikkei or Russia's new market, or any(/ALL) other nations market's:

1) What legal remedies are there?
2) Is enforcement universal? Or, is it subject to each markets own laws? Really? Or only in theory?
3) Is the likelihood of getting caught different in other markets?
4) Has this been a problem, historically?

I've always thought that this is a very soft and squishy thing. At least it seems to be here in the US. No doubt, I'm pretty ignorant about this kind of stuff (and I imagine so many things :(). Non-universal insider trading enforcement seems like one of those rush-to-the-bottom kind of things, where "practicality" and/or the ridicule of pie-in-the-sky idealism over-shadows and otherwise hides yet another advantage of the wealthy and powerful. In other words, Capital (money) seems to have "Rights and Privileges" that supersede those of ordinary every-day people. It's my opinion that there really is two different worlds.

I'm open to correction. (Up to a point.)

Just because the hoops are the same for those on ladders as for those on the ground, or worse... Or are they?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
