The “LIBOR” Scandal …Part III –
– Banks a conduit for crime and corruption!!!
| Author: EYE-BALL Guru | 19th July 2012 |
|The LIBOR scandal is broadening – latest reports reveal that HSBC – formally known as the Hong-Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation– now based in London and 2nd largest Bank in the World – has been found to be acting as Bankers to Drug Cartels, Terrorist organisations, and a number of other illegal activities.To date some 14,000 clients have had their accounts frozen or closed. The scandal is all in-house for the moment and slow leaks are forthcoming. Allegations published yesterday include:
Banks have nowhere to turn when it comes to exposed behaviour. Politicians and Regulators are unable to grasp any perception in how to deal with the Bank’s exposed behaviour. From the cause of the GFC – i.e the Goldman Sachs sub-prime scourge, to the way Lehmans were sacrificed to allow all the other Banks to carry on with business as usual, to the TARP bailouts and cheap money window provided to give the Banks opportunity to lend to help the economy and recapitalise, to the latest LIBOR and now Banks involved with rogue Nations, Drug cartels and Terrorism – Banks have lost any right to presumed creditability.
If we throw in the Justice mantra – the top echelon of Bankers are a protected species – they have the money and the lawyer pool and as yet none of the serious players have had to face any serious jail time. Justice is not equal or fair – there is one rule for those who can but a good lawyer, and then there is justice for those who don’t have the means to provide any defence.
Are they murderers, who knows, are they drug dealers – well yes – they help launder the money, are they Terrorists – well yes – again they help with the money transfers to ‘cells’ etc … who believes their Bank really has the customers interests at heart?
What can Law enforcement do, Regulators and Legislators also? There has to be a Global Enquiry into Banking – and done at arms length with any connected agency – just who that might be is a stroll through who is not corrupt or corrupted by the Capitalist system that is the backbone of our society.
A deluded friend told me a couple of days ago – some corruption is good – he believed that the world functions best when corruption/bribes are a part of the system – for him to believe and advocate this gave me real pause. Still a friend – but a part of the problem – and unable to be a part of the solution.
If the World is so ready to accept that all business happens with a base level of corruption accepted – what does that say about the world and how far it has gone past the point of no return. To think that a ‘bribe’ is the only way business happens – as it does across all Asia – and many other cultures – and now also happening as a Western custom – this society we all live in is unsustainable – it is time stamped for complete implosion.
