Sounds like capitalism to me.... Don't invest if you don't want to accept the risk.
Sounds like a scam
to me. All you have to do is get people to invest, then you can make some really bad business choices and wipe them out--- and you don't suffer.
Sounds to me like the investors who are being 'scammed' don't know what they are getting into.... Perhaps people should spend more time reading about how the stock market works? It's been this way for a long time... I don't want them to change anything now. Besides, if a company declares bankruptcy and their stock didn't immediately have no value, then it would pretty much by market forces from people selling immediately!
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
