Auditor Shopping Or, When Harry Met Congress

Many of you have asked what I thought of Harry Markopolos’ testimony yesterday on the Madoff/SEC cluster schmuck.

CNN Money has the story.

The Wall Street Journal has the “all Madoff, all the time” channel here.

The WSJ Law Blog also comments on the suits against the auditors and I commented. Check it out.

I’ve written about auditor shopping by hedge funds here.

I’ve written about audit musical chairs here.

My favorite Madoff post by me is here.

When will you guys stop thinking I’m making this stuff up?

I’m in New York City until Saturday.

Agenda filled with lots of places to go, people to do, things to see…

Tonight I’m double booked. I’ve been invited to an event by Stacy-Marie Ishmael, reporter for the FT’s Alphaville site, who is speaking at the Paley Center for Media. Topic: The Changing World of News

Then off to the 92nd Street Y for the Huffington Post Blogger event with Michelle Leder of, Edith Orenstein of FEI Blog and an old friend of mine from JP Morgan Latin America days.
