The ethical sentiment in securities trading- Case study in short selling
Corporate governance and finance are dynamic academic fields that offer myriad opportunities for business ethics analysis. Within the corporate governance triad in recent years, shareholders have increased their power over boards of directors and executives through both regulation and movements to change corporate by-laws. The impact of board characteristics on firm performance has proven elusive, leading to questions concerning board processes and individual director beliefs and behaviours. At the same time, CEOs have lost considerable power, leaving many struggling to regain their control and maintain their compensation levels, while others adopt a stewardship approach to their posts. In the field of finance, the recent financial debacle has led to a re-examination of financial regulation and of the fundamental nature and purpose of the industry. All of these issues provide business ethicists fodder for investigation and analysis.
In this article, we shall examine the oscillating sentiments of the trader vs Investor vs. the Financial Market, with a view to dissect the overriding views from rash reasoning.
In Particular, we shall touch upon ‘Short Selling’ and understand its criticisms and I conclude with my conciliatory opinion.
This article is very subjective, open to arguments and based on historical facts and current practices that are tenable to public scrutiny.
