William K Black on how to fix the financial crime wave
CORPORATE CRIME REPORTER

William K. Black: Obamas Financial Regulation Plan Doomed to Fail
23 Corporate Crime Reporter 26(13), July 1, 2009

President Obamas financial regulation proposal is doomed to fail.

Why?

Because it was developed by people who dont believe in regulation.

(What would Black do?)

Implant at every financial regulator an office of the chief criminologist.

"If you look at the largest single area of losses in banks it has been control fraud,"Black told Corporate Crime Reporter last week. "But of course, institutionally, none of these financial regulatory agencies are set up well to even spot or stop these kinds of fraud. They dont have the training, they dont have the background, they dont have institutional structures that focus on the criminality."

"So, you would institutionalize. You put in place someone who knows about fraud, the literature about crime and criminology. They need to think, before they deregulate, whether they are producing what we refer to as a criminogenic environment an environment that is going to produce widespread crime."

4. ''The Best Way to Rob a Bank Is to Own One''
Thanks for the heads-up, autorank. Mr. Black brings light. He should be Secretary of the Treasury.
