Imagine how the President feels about this? I mean, how much cash can he move with his hotels and clubs down? Real-estate is going to take a hit too, so you think you got problems? I mean, these amateurs are just the tip of the iceberg...

And we thought Iraq, Iran, and North Korea were the axis of evil.  Now, it's China, Mexico and Madagascar.

Human rights abuses and free trade led to the swine flu, the bird flu, SARS and COVID-19 along with lower wages for 40 million Americans.
Welcome to the Democratic version of "this isn't the time to discuss this".

Gus Fring could have fixed this.

In case anyone hadn't heard of this trade-based money laundering, here's the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists page on the topic.  I'm still a bit unclear on how trade-based money laundering interfaces with converting cash to bank transfers, which, one would think, has to be an integral part of the scheme.  And the article, after all, was about the cash itself piling up.

You used to just have to wash the stench of corruption off of it.  That was easy, all you had to do was wave it at a Miami condo.

It takes a lot longer to clean the 'rona off of a briefcase full of Benjamins.

It would be nice to be rich enough to keep a kiddie pool filled with loose $100 bills in the house for the occasional moneybath.

CSB:

When my son was enrolled in kiddie karate we socialized with other parents.  The dojo would host "Parent's Night" which was really a Friday night pizza and movie party for all the kids so the parents could go out.  Until 10pm anyway.

So we got to socializing with the other parents, and one of them was a Forensic Accountant for a bank he would not name.  Ted is like 6-5 and looks like a cop.  Until he starts talking, then he sounds like a geek.

I had never heard of such a thing as Forensic Accounting, but it sounded fascinating.  Basically, it's auditing bank and insurance transactions for use as evidence in a civil or criminal trial.  He said, "it's boring as hell.  But if you ever have a lot of money you need laundered, I know how."  He paused and then cracked, "Come see me.  I only charge 10%."

I thought he was joking... but six years later, Ted and his wife and son had moved to a small mountain town in Costa Rica.

Sure, let's blame China for everything, instead of the steady erosion of the social safety net and every government agency that's supposed to step in at a time like this.

Currency is farking disgusting. I spent a few years in bank branches...it was awful when a load of cash would come in and you'd have to count it. $200grand in 20s, 10s, 5s and ones leaves a vomit-like smell on you. Your hands are greasy and black with filth after counting. Disgusting.
