A Second Look at the Standard Chartered Accusations

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Yesterday, New York's top banking regulator accused the British bank Standard Chartered of secretly helping the Iranian government to launder billions of dollars. Standard Chartered has denied the accusations, saying 99 percent of the transactions in question complied with regulations.

Now other authorities investigating the bank are questioning just how expansive Standard Chartered's mistakes were.

I wonder if Standard, chartered a boat to carry all the dirty money to overseas accounts.

The only mistake Standard Chartered made is that they got caught and as long as their punishment is less than what they earned by doing the wrong thing, all Bankers and Financial people will continue to do business as usual.

I am curious as to how many American Bankers and Financial people are working out of England. Every time I talk to someone who works in Finances, they keep talking about Americans overseas working in England
