Richard Moore and the NYSE Regulatory Board

Our own Richard Moore is going to sit on the New York Stock Exchange Regulation board. According to the Triangle Business Journal, "[t]he board is charged with regulating the activities of NYSE-listed companies, investment bankers and other NYSE member organizations by enforcing marketplace rules and federal securities laws." Sounds good, right? We'll have to see whether Moore will be able to make a dent in the notoriously intractable problems of corporate governance. This isn't a day job, and there's no reason that his spot on the board should be anything but good for his 2008 run for Governor.
