As an investor in today's market, you are on your own: you need to arm yourself with the right information, learn to read between the lines of financial reports and statements, and follow the money when you suspect that accounting tricks are in play to produce misleading results or offer false prospects. Swindlers challenge the idea that the average Canadian can expect fair treatment and a fair return when investing their money; clearly there is one set of rules for the wealthy and another for the rest of us. Is the system broken? Or is it working exactly the way it should for those it is designed to benefit? Is Canada really better at financial regulation than the United States or is it 80 years behind?

. How to protect your investments from cons and cheats.

. Canada would appear to have a conservative, risk-averse market.

. In fact, the abysmally lax laws and weak enforcement of financial reporting principles contribute to the erosion of corporate accountability.

. This book details how to become a conscientious investor.

The authors, fther and son, make a compelling presentation.
