Rolling Stone Explains Role of Naked Short Selling in Financial Crisis
Former DTCC operations manager Susanne Trimbath is interviewed by Matt Taibbi for his latest article in Rolling Stone.
In his new article, Trimbath tells Taibbi the story of how, in 1993, she tried to get senior management at the world’s largest central depository (Depository Trust Company) to stop allowing shares of stock in US companies to be multiplied through stock lending and excessive short selling. “You can’t balance the world,” was the response she got from regulators. She contends this is because "Wall Street is self-regulated and they don’t want to write regulations against themselves."
Susanne Trimbath holds the Ph.D. degree in economics from New York University. She is an expert on post-trade securities operations and is featured in several films about Wall Street. She frequently acts as an expert witness in securities litigation. Trimbath is a former mid-level operations manager at Depository Trust Company (now a subsidiary of Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation in New York). Matt Taibbi, who is best known for his articles and books on politics, turned to writing and blogging on finance after the 2008 Presidential election. His new expose will be featured in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone magazine due out in early October.
