The Biggest Financial Scam In World History
by George Washington
There have been numerous big banking scandals recently.
But the Libor scandal is the biggest financial scam in world history. See this and this.
The former CEO of Barclays said today that banks across the world were fixing interest rates in the run-up to the financial crisis .
Professor of economics and law Bill Black notes:
It is the largest rigging of prices in the history of the world by many orders of magnitude.
Indeed, the scandal effects an $800 trillion dollar market – 10 times the size of the real world economy.
Matt Taibbi explains
that this is the “mega scandal of all mega scandals”, because Libor is
the “sun at the center of the financial universe”, and manipulating
Libor means that “the whole Earth is built on quicksand.”
