Spreading the Message

The competition of ideas makes our great democracy stronger. It is our duty as citizens to seek out the best ideas from both sides of a debate so we can continue progressing as a society.

Debate can be passionate without being personal. Spirited and positive debates are the cornerstones of our democracy. We should not fear alternative ideas but should carefully consider them on their merits. As a nation we must embrace the debate and discussion of ideas about the various issues concerning us.

Over the last several weeks, my input about white collar crime has been published in the blogs below.

I thank these blogs for covering my side of the issue on white collar crime, Sarbanes Oxley, internal controls, the accounting profession, and more.

Their readers have agreed and disagreed with me. I respect them all and hope that my input on the issues that we discussed may contribute to helping prevent white collar crime, strengthening the integrity of financial information, and help strengthen our financial markets.
