Mark Cuban [with Christopher Cox]: You don't know what it's like to fight the SEC until you walk into an arena and they're chanting 'insider trading.'

I was there. Cuban was informed, articulate, and impressive. Cox not so much. Came off as a former bureaucrat who didn’t much care about reforming the SEC and has now graduated to making millions by leveraging this failure.

The technical competency of the SEC has long been an issue in bringing unwarranted (easily proved so) administrative actions which often have no merit but require millions to defend. What do you do when you don’t have unlimited deep pockets? There should be a mechanism to address such disputes without bankrupting the parties who must defend themselves. Win the dispute and lose a lifetime of accumulated wealth.

Great Session for sure….Kudos to Market Counsel for bringing these two together. While Cuban was clearly chomping at the bit to be on stage with Cox, give credit to Cox for his willingness to take the stage and publicly admit that the SEC needs to change.

The upper RIA echelon mass-exit is now at 25 execs and counting -- for 25 'reasons' -- but it's hardly a coincidence, analysts say

Burnout and EBITDA weigh on CEO-types as never-ending exits claim Ron Carson, Aaron Klein, Bernie Clark, Rudy Adolf, Bill Crager and Tim Buckley.
