Thoughts and Observations of a Minister

Take a look around, make yourself at home.
You will find some of my favorite things, and some of my innermost thoughts.

Poems, quotes, music, preaching, and a few funny things.
Take your time, add your comments, and come back as often as you like.

Condition and Response of Law Enforcement

Ivan Petrovich Pavlov most of us remember him from grade school. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1904 for research pertaining to the digestive system. Pavlov is widely known for first describing the phenomena of how he was able to train his many dogs to drool on command.

Condition and response is used in almost ever business, demographics, social sciences.
To know how people will respond , always give you and advantage.

Most logical people already know this. Criminals know this too, they know just how much time it takes for the police to respond to a call, or who goes on the fire run.

In the stock market there are many white collar criminals, some are smart, they study the system, they know who will respond and how they will respond. They calculate their moves accordingly.
The problem in the market is the law enforcement, SEC and the over-site committees, have not kept up with the tactics of the criminals.
The crooks keep coming and the SEC and others keep responding in the same way they alwasy have.
There is a old saying; follow the money.

The first change that needs to be made is follow the money.
Find out who benefited from the loss of others.
The SEC will not respond by pulling all trading records on a company, why not?
The times have changed, and the market is all about money. Finding a criminal is not enough.
Finding the money will, stop manipulation.
Until the SEC starts looking for the money as well as a criminal to pin it on,
the money will continue to disappear.

The SEC need to change the way they continually do things.
The crook can not only read them like a book, but the crooks use them,
and the way they have always done it to their benefit.

We need some new laws, we need fresh blood in the SEC, and we need a quick and effective response. Then swift punishment, and make sure it cost more to break the law than to keep it.
