If you've picked up a newspaper in the
last few months, you may have seen
Michael Kraten quoted in it!
Kraten, a CTCPA Board of Directors
member-at-large and president of En-
terprise Management Corp. in Milford,
co-authored a paper entitled "Libor Manipulation?" The
paper delves into Barclay's alleged rate-fixing scandal,
which Kraten has been investigating for approximately
four years.
When the paper was cited on the floor of the British House
of Commons during a global banking regulation debate,
the British press picked up the story. Since then, a number
of respected media have interviewed Kraten, including:
Bloomberg Businessweek
The Wall Street Journal's "MarketWatch"
WPRI, a Providence, RI news station.
Kraten's expertise stretches beyond global banking, too
on June 29, the Connecticut Post quoted him in the article
"Health Reform Seen as Tangle."
