The best way to rob a bank is to own one : how corporate executives and politicians looted the S & L industry by William K Black( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lays bare the strategies that corrupt CEOs and CFOs--in collusion with those who have regulatory oversight of their industries--use to defraud companies for their personal gain. Recounting the investigations he conducted as Director of Litigation for the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, Black fully reveals how Charles Keating and hundreds of other S & L owners took advantage of a weak regulatory environment to perpetrate accounting fraud on a massive scale. He also authoritatively links the S & L crash to the business failures of the early 2000s, showing how CEOs then and now are using the same tactics to defeat regulatory restraints and commit the same types of destructive fraud. Throughout, Black drives home the larger point that control fraud is a major, ongoing threat in business that requires active, independent regulators to contain it. From publisher description
