Investigating Economic Organized Crime

The economic crisis needs to be investigated using RICO laws used against organized crime, says Danny Schechter, author and director of Plunder: The Crime of Our Time. Wall Street made billions off mortgage fraud, and all the busts of mortgage lenders in the world won’t get the real culprits.

Schechter joins GRITtv’s Laura Flanders in studio to talk about the unreported story of the economic crisis, which continues to haunt millions of Americans, and which Paul Krugman recently referred to as the third depression.

    Hearing about people taking more cash than the law allows for political reasons is more typical than it ought to be, quite possibly in Europe. Nicolas Sarkozy has been charged with taking contributions well over the allowed amount and for individual reasons also not only political ones.
    These funds he accepted weren’t a personal loans amount more than allowed, they were considerably larger than granted which plays a role in why so many people are upset. The worst part is that so many individuals aren’t shocked that an illegal event such as this happened.
