“How to get away with financial fraud,” by Dan Davies in The Guardian: “Most white-collar crime works by manipulating institutional psychology. That means creating something that looks as much as possible like a normal set of transactions. The drama comes later, when it all unwinds. One point that comes up again and again, when looking at famous and large-scale frauds, is that everything could have been brought to a halt at a very early stage if anyone had taken care to confirm all the facts. But nobody does. There are just too bloody many of them.” http://bit.ly/2KtKbkl
