  • Up until about 2006, the primary source of latency, or delay in processing market trading data came from the speed of computers and networks. Wall Street has always bought the fastest computers available, being among the first industries to adopt the latest technology.

  • Anything they do (privatizing public property and other's people asset) they will always need justification for their action. What better way than using media to justify their action by sprinkling here and there the above quote in all of their statements.
