Financial Fraud Public Service Announcement
Actor Michael Douglas, who played a Wall Street tycoon in the movie “Wall Street,” says that while the 1987 movie was fiction, the problem is all too real.
“The point is, ladies and gentlemen, greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right.”
Hello, I’m Michael Douglas. In the movie Wall Street I play Gordon Gekko, a greedy corporate executive who cheated to profit while innocent investors lost their savings.
The movie was fiction, but the problem is real.
Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and the integrity of the financial markets. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is.
