Turning financial markets inside out: how insider trading regulation really works
by Ulrika Sjodin, Thomas Bay, Elton G. McGoun
International Journal of Critical Accounting (IJCA), Vol. 2, No. 4, 2010

Abstract: Insider trading regulation produces excess speculation and stimulates deceptive stock exchange trading – the very things that it is supposed to eliminate. In Sweden, this was part of a deliberate political agenda to make financial markets livelier and more exciting, almost as if they were games.
