Book Overview

A remarkable debut by one of America's premier young reporters on financial corruption, Casey Michel's American Kleptocracy offers the first explosive investigation into how the United States of America built the largest illicit offshore finance system the world has ever known.

An indefatigable young American journalist who has virtually cornered the international kleptocracy beat on the US end of the black aquifer.
--The Los Angeles Review of Books

For years, one country has acted as the greatest offshore haven in the world, attracting hundreds of billions of dollars in illicit finance tied directly to corrupt regimes, extremist networks, and the worst the world has to offer. But it hasn't been the sand-splattered Caribbean islands, or even traditional financial secrecy havens like Switzerland or Panama, that have come to dominate the offshoring world. Instead, the country profiting the most also happens to be the one that still claims to be the moral leader of the free world, and the one that claims to be leading the fight against the crooked and the corrupt: the USA.

American Kleptocracy examines just how the United States' implosion into a center of global offshoring took place: how states like Delaware and Nevada perfected the art of the anonymous shell company, and how post-9/11 reformers watched their success usher Read More chevron_right

   Depressing, Yet Resolvable
It is depressing to read about kleptocracy and how oligarchs hide their fortunes etc. I am not a Bernie Sanders fan or Elizabeth Warren, but I do applaud their efforts. In the last chapter, Bernie quoted a great deal. He's Warren are good in legislative positions, just don 't want to see them leading the country. Thank you for the transparency! Michel did a great job, Mr. Great Job.

   Explosive and revelatory
This book has really changed my mind about how dark finance and illicit money work. An enthralling and illuminating book, and one that I revisit again.
