The most obvious aspect of the US economy that the Sarbanes Oxley Act not been able to resolve is to restore and re-establish the investor confidence in the stock markets of America and bring up the dollar rate paid by them per share.

We find statistically significant increases, from before to after the passage of SOX, in total return variance, market risk and idiosyncratic risk.
