Once a staid financial institution with a focus on Asia, HSBC has
found itself caught up in recent years in scandals involving predatory
lending, tax evasion and the role its lax internal controls have played
in helping drug traffickers and organizations said to be linked to
terrorist groups. To resolve U.S. charges relating to the latter, HSBC
had to pay out nearly $2 billion in penalties. In 2015 the bank came
under fire again when leaked data on secret customer accounts led to new
allegations that the bank was abetting tax evasion.
“Only low echelon drug dealers get caught with drug money in
their hands. The elite – Drexel Burnham, Credite Suisse, Hong Kong and
Shanghai Bank (HSBC) – escape detection… American Express was and still
is a conduit for laundering drug money.”
John Coleman in his book “Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300”
JPMorgan Chase, a prime symbol of financial sector misconduct and reckless behavior in recent years, represents the consolidation of several of the most powerful New York and Chicago money center banks as well as the investment house founded by the legendary financier and robber baron J.P. Morgan. In 2008 two failing institutions—brokerage house Bear Stearns and mortgage lender Washington Mutual—were added to the mix. Those two acquisitions played a key role in the $13 billion settlement JPMorgan reached with the U.S. Justice Department in 2013 to resolve allegations of abuses in the period leading up to the financial crisis.
“Before World War I, two opposing systems of political economy competed for dominance in the United States. One operated out of Wall Street, the New York financial district that came to be the symbol of American finance. Its most important address was 23 Wall Street, known as the “House of Morgan.” J. P. Morgan was an agent of powerful British banking interests. The Wizards of Wall Street and the Old World bankers pulling their strings sought to establish a national currency that was based on the “gold standard,” one created privately by the financial elite who controlled the gold.
The other system dated back to Benjamin Franklin and operated out of Philadelphia… The Philadelphia faction favored a bank on the model established in provincial Pennsylvania, where a state loan office issued and lent money, collected the interest, and returned it to the provincial government to he used in place of taxes. President Abraham Lincoln returned to the colonial system of government-issued money during the Civil War; but he was assassinated, and the bankers reclaimed control of the money machine. The silent coup of the Wall Street faction culminated with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913.”
Although it was forced to adopt the technical structure of a bank holding company during the 2008 financial crisis, Morgan Stanley is still primarily an investment house, a leading player on Wall Street for the past 75 years. The firm was spun off from J.P. Morgan’s financial empire in 1935 after the Glass-Steagall Act mandated the separation of commercial banking and investment banking in an effort to end the abuses that led to the stock market crash and the Great Depression.
Over the last 150 years the corporation has risen from relative obscurity to become the world’s dominant economic institution. Eminent Canadian law professor and legal theorist Joel Bakan contends that today’s corporation is a pathological institution, a dangerous possessor of the great power it wields over people and societies.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” Marcia Angell, MD, The Truth About the Drug Companies
