I was initially asked to do a webinar about this, but since WSO focussed away from my field, it would be morally wrong for me not to share this with you. I'm working at one of the big 4 (doesnt matter which as all are doing it, just we're ahead - shots fired). I'm not an auditor at all, ...

Vice Interviews Martin Shkreli-- Confirmed that he is as awkward as you'd expectJust last week, Vice uploaded a video interview with everyone's favorite "finance" guy. I use the term loosely because with each piece of news that comes out about Martin Shkreli, I find his story harder and harder to believe (where both the validity of his career and that of himself dwindles down.)...
