Book: Raymond W. Baker «Capitalism's Achilles Heel»

Capitalism's Achilles Heel

Серия: "-"

A fascinating insider's look at the way criminals, terrorists, and businesspeople move money around the world, impoverishing people and corrupting capitalism's ideals of fair play From his experiences in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Europe, Raymond Baker shows how Western banks and businesses use secret transactions and flout laws in order to generate and transfer dirty money. In Capitalism's Achilles Heel, Baker examines three categories of illicit proceeds corrupt, criminal, and commercial and explains how some one trillion dollars pass to the West annually, most of which is solicited and channeled by Western corporations and financial institutions. Baker also reveals how fraudulent financial activity, global poverty, and inequality are inextricably intertwined. Readers will discover how businesspeople, drug kingpins, other criminals, and terrorists have perfected the art of shifting funds through transfer pricing, false documentation, fake corporations, tax havens, pass-through accounts, and other tricks of the trade. He illustrates the economic consequences of dirty money and the abuse of the underpinnings of capitalism, and offers specific reforms to counteract abuse and spread global prosperity.
