Michael Douglas: 'The movie was fiction. The problem is real'

Quote of the day: Hollywood actor Michael Douglas is fronting a new campaign by the FBI to tackle insider trading and securities fraud. Douglas, who famously stated that 'Greed is good' as hard-nosed banker Gordon Gekko in the 1987 film Wall Street, released a statement today, saying: 'The movie was fiction, but the problem is real. Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and integrity of the financial markets. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is.'
