Many of the major banks in the U.S. and around the world are engaged in activity that is held to be illegal and criminal.
JPMorgan Chase moved money for people who stole public funds in Malaysia, Venezuela and the Ukraine. Deutsche Bank of Germany has been engaged in money laundering in several countries, and also in the bribery of government officials in China and other countries. HSBC Bank of Britain has admitted laundering money for drug cartels in Latin America, and managed money for the Russian mafia and for Ponzi schemes in multiple countries.
The investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists found government documents that established these criminal activities amounted to over two trillion dollars, that is $2,000,000,000!!! And, of course, this is just the amount that has been found out so far.
These banks continue their criminal activities, despite the fact that governments in the U.S. and other countries are well aware of what they are doing.
It doesn’t seem like these bank executives and bank owners, these “Masters of the Universe,” are very worried that the governments of their fellow capitalists might put them in jail for stealing trillions. After all, they are all partners in crime.
