PLUNDER: The Crime of Our Time

“I used to think of Wall Street as a financial center. I now think of it as a crime scene.” – Filmmaker Danny Schecter, Plunder (2009)

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it, and a moral code that glorifies it.” – Political economist Frederic Bastiat, The Law [1850]
