Follow the Money -- Tracking the Criminal Money Trail

Grand corruption facilitated by the ensuing global money laundering is the most important human rights and environmental problem of our time.  Any effort for progressive reform, whether domestic US or international, is thwarted by grand (elite oligarchs) corruption.  Economists demonstrated nearly universally that grand corruption causes poverty.  While moral outrage against greedy oligarchs is fun, it's more important to understand the very tough legal tools currently available to combat grand corruption.  This talk will provide a quick overview of some of the more important legal tools. 


We welcome local or visiting retired attorneys who are interested in learning more about our organization. However, advance reservations are required.
