The US Department of Justice is under fire for failing to prosecute banks that caused the 2008 economic meltdown because they are too big to jail. Prosecutors have long neglected to hold corporate executives accountable for chronic mistakes that kill and injure workers and customers. This book, the first of its kind, analyzes five industrial catastrophes that have killed or sickened consumers and workers or caused irrevocable harm to the environment. From the Texas City refinery explosion to the Upper Big Branch mine collapse, the root causes of these preventable disasters include crimes of commission and omission. Although federal prosecutors have made a start on holding low-level managers liable, far more aggressive prosecution is appropriate as a matter of law, policy, and justice. Written in accessible and jargon-free language, this book recommends innovative interpretations of existing laws to elevate the prosecution of white-collar crime at the federal and state levels.

Schechter goes right for the jugular in this rich and informative analysis of the financial crisis and its roots. Not errors, accident, market uncertainties, and so on, but crime; major and serious crime. A harsh judgment, but it's not easy to dismiss the case that he constructs. - Noam Chomsky Veteran journalist Danny Schechter investigates a complex web of fraud and crime that he shows played a major - if largely unreported - role in bringing the economy down. His four-year investigation focuses on three interconnected cesspools of corruption; what the FBI calls an epidemic of mortgage fraud, predatory and deceptive securitization by Wall Street, and insurance scams.
