   From the DAILY NEWS EXPRESS, Personal Finance (cbs.marketwatch.com), 24 January 2001, pg. 14, col. 1:

   Wall Street has a "don't ask, don't get" policy.  At most firms, you can negotiate the price of your investments products.  Asking can lower breakpoints, costs and management fees.

   This is not in www.investorwords.com.
   It's not really an investor term.  It's more like an ancient Jewish mother proverb.  It pre-dates "don't ask, don't tell."
   I don't know what Fred Shapiro has.
