Crimes of the Financial Elite

Professor of Economics and Law and former financial regulator William K. Black estimated that there were at least one and a half million felonies in the period of the sub-prime lending spree in the US – similar processes happened in the UK too – while the City of London and its associated network of tax havens and secrecy jurisdictions are globally the number one locations for evading regulation, hiding financial crime and tax evasion…

Room 2 at the International Community Centre for a presentation on financial crime and its role in the financial crisis. There will also be a showing of part of the excellent Charles Ferguson documentary “Inside Job” followed by a discussion. (That’s a DVD I would recommend buying if you have not seen it already).
