      Deep Capture given by Patrick Byrne

      Patrick Byrne, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Overstock.com, will speak about what he feels is a massive systematic failure in the financial system, which is allowing billions of dollars to be siphoned out of the system through an illegal tactic known as “naked short selling.” Dr. Byrne argues that few people know about this crime because our regulators and business journalists – the very watchdogs charged with keeping this from happening – have been unduly influenced.

      Dr. Byrne has spent the past three years raising awareness of the naked short selling ticking time bomb. Along the way, he has documented many examples of how deeply “captured” regulators and the media have become.

      Dr. Byrne received his bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth University, a master’s degree from Cambridge University as a Marshall Scholar, and his doctorate in philosophy from Stanford University. Prior to founding Overstock.com, Dr. Byrne served as CEO of Centricut, LLC. He also founded Worldstock.com, the socially responsible goods division of Overstock.com. In 2002, Dr. Byrne was named to Business Week’s list of the 25 most influential people in e-business, and in 2003 he was selected for Ernst and Young’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” award.
