Carl Olson Chairman Fund for Stockowners Rights
CARL OLSON Chairman, Fund for Stockowners Rights
By Carl Olson
Carl Olson is chairman of the Fund for Stockowners Rights.
Carl Olson, chairman of the Fund for Stockowners Rights, said that the lack of pay for investigators is troubling because of the way the board is structured. Its budget is paid for by fees paid its 76,000 licensees in the state. While the state may be in trouble, he said, the board has been sitting on a $25 million bank account. Late last year, the Schwarzenegger borrowed $11 million from this fund to help cover operating expenses in the general fund. It also borrowed money from several other professional boards.
"It's not tax money, it's supposed to be a protected fund," Olson said. "The licensees are being double-taxed, because the money they pay in to be regulated is being appropriated for other purposes."
Olson said his group has been on a campaign to push the board towards a more aggressive stance-in editorials, appearances at board meetings and public clashes with groups like the National Association of Boards of Accountancy. Even while state retirements funds like CALPERS have lost 20 percent of their value due to rampant financial mismanagement across the country. The California Board and other boards of accountancy have not done enough to investigate and require information from the large companies it watches, Olson said.
"As they're dithering around, all of these giant fiascos are going unpunished and encouraged," Olson said. He added: "If you're going to get a CPA who understands what they need to, you need to pay at least $100,000 to get someone who is competent and devoted."
No major case against a Big Four firm has been pursued in years."--Carl Olson, Chairman, Fund for Stockowners Rights, Washington, D.C.

The U. S. government plans to demolish Cooper Island in the Canadian Plover Group off Point Barrow, Alaska, without the consent of the Canadian government, it was reported by Carl Olson, Chairman of State Department Watch, a foreign policy watchdog group headquartered in Washington, D. C. The U. S. Bureau of Land Management confessed in a letter of November 10, 2004, that it had no record of American assertion of sovereignty over Cooper Island.
"We hope they will quickly correct this embarrassing failure," stated Olson.

"We see this suppression of free speech as a political move by Governor Frank Murkowski who appointed the Attorney General," charged Carl Olson, chairman of State Department Watch, headquartered in Washington, D. C. "Murkowski favored the giveaway while he served in the U. S. Senate and now apparently doesn't want any publicity in Alaska for his failure as governor to fight the giveaway."
