In the early 2000s, federal enforcement efforts sent white collar criminals at Enron and WorldCom to prison. But since the 2008 financial collapse, this famously hasn't happened. Corporations have been permitted to enter into deferred prosecution agreements and avoid criminal convictions, in part due to a mistaken assumption that leniency would encourage cooperation and because enforcement agencies don't have the funding or staff to pursue lengthy prosecutions, says distinguished Columbia Law Professor John C. Coffee. “We are moving from a system of justice for organizational crime that mixed carrots and sticks to one that is all carrots and no sticks,” he says.
I know the author personally, and was introduced to him by Sterling Seagrave (RIP), whom I also knew personally. Sterling was for me the top chronicler of Asian history both sordid and splendid. One of his books (linked below) that comes with three CDs of maps, photos, and data, is worth multiple trillions of dollars provided the Guardians of the individual sites can be won over.
5 Star – A Single Businessman Documents A Single Case
This is not a typical book by a typical author. This is a briefing by one very skilled businessman focused on one very specific case that indicts the Puerto Rican government and energy company, the FBI and DOJ, and the US Congress as well as all major banks and the three credit rating companies.
Each volume is 8.5 x 11 full page size, with the footnotes displayed on the pages rather than as endnotes. Each book has its own index.
This is a PhD-level reference work highly relevant to the campaign to take down the Deep State and the Satanists, Pedophiles, & Secret Societies that Torture Children and have cheated hundreds of generations of humanity of their inheritance.
The book loses a 6th star for not providing the larger context (the Wall Street banks alone have stolen $100 trillion and laundered $100 trillion in the past decade) and for a weak hit job on Donald Trump, but on balance I am in awe of this book and admiring of the author's gifted research and equally gifted ability to tell the story.
This is one of the top ten books on money laundering and how dirty money funds dirty power.
This is a very corrupt and deceptive book, a mediocre book, that suggests that greedy Wall Street bankers are to blame for everything including the corruption (no mention of blackmail) of politicians who serve the 1% and screw the 99% with impunity.
The author will make quite a bit of money with this shit book. It is 30 years late, superficial, has no index, and totally avoids discussing the real threat.
After suffering months of unexplained nausea, insomnia, ringing in the ears, fatigue and body aches she consulted with a German doctor to help her figure out what was happening. In her journey to find her own health she learned about the secrecy of government agencies and how evidence of health effects are suppressed. Her diary reads like Anne Frank. Chilling and a warning to us all. The last part of the book is devoted to valuable DYI measures to protect your home and family. In the age of wireless this book is a necessary read. Her story is reminiscent of other peoples journey’s into microwave illness and chronic electrohypersensitivity. All EMFd Up (Electromagnetic Fields): My Journey Through Wireless Radiation Poisoning and How You Can Protect Yourself. (2019) by Anne Mills is a good read.
