The industry counters by denying these facts and boldly claiming that they provide liquidity and lower costs, but it has been demonstrated that HFT is more often a liquidity taker than a liquidity provider and, if anything, raises the costs of trading.
Is there a bias against public investment in clean energy? Just ask Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk.
Americans are now being tracked as they've never been tracked before. What is normal and accepted these days sounds like a tinfoil-hatted paranoiac's delusion from just a few decades ago, in fact.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled his grand vision for drone attacks on our porches and personal spaces. From a warehouse to your front door, goods delivered in record time with minimal hassle. What could possibly go wrong with that? Pretty much everything and here's why.
A bookstore is a nice thing in a neighborhood. Not just because you wouldn't mind if your daughter worked there, or your brother. It would be good for the community, too. They could help people find a book.
Why is this incredibly tight-lipped company suddenly showing off prototypes? The answer is that these drones were not designed to carry packages, but to give a lift to Amazon's image.
Perhaps Mayday, in its implied greatness, is just another Amazonian invasion of our privacy we should be wary of.
It would be an interesting cruise to be on. The one with Alec Baldwin, Lara Logan and Maria Bartiromo as your ship mates. Interesting if you didn't care where you were going or if you got there.
