Hofstra Law Review


The article discusses the U.S. Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge Act of 2012 (STOCK Act) and the efforts to curb insider trading by members of the U.S. Congress as of September 2013, focusing on the STOCK Act's reported compromise between politically-motivated accountability and a push to end congressional corruption in America. The relationship between the U.S. securities industry (Wall Street) and the nation's Congress is examined, along with federal legislation and penalties.
