The article assesses the role of the electronic data gathering and analysis and retrieval system (EDGAR) in making the stock market more accessible. The EDGAR, implemented by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), is a project intended to accelerate the filing, processing, dissemination, and analysis of corporate information. The most important benefit to companies, which participate may be faster and more efficient processing. Filings are received and reviewed, and comments are sent faster than for non-EDGAR filings. Participants already are using EDGAR in innovative ways to keep costs down.
