A discussion of methodologies used to hide revenues 11 April 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Written by a senior economist and criminology professor along with a former director of the Division of International Finance of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Chasing Dirty Money: The Fight Against Money Laundering is a no-nonsense discussion of methodologies used to hide revenues gained from a wide variety of crimes and how to block such assets from being transferred and perpetuated. Chapters clarify laundering mechanisms, from simiply smuggling cash out of the country to using casinos, lotteries, and horse races to lose a little betting but receive clean payoff in issued checks, to taking out single premium insurance policies for which the premium is paid in an upfront lump sum rather than annual installments - then later redeeming these policies at a discount. Further chapters discuss protecting the integrity of financial systems, combating predicate crimes connected to money laundering, confronting such global evils as terrorism and kleptocracy or corruption that rely heavily on money laundering, and much more. A sober, serious-minded resource, an absolute must-read for all economic students and professionals, and an eye-opening revelation for lay readers.

Good Basic info but out of date 30 Dec. 2012
By Cat Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a quickly evolving space and information from 2003 is not very relevant. Having said that, the fundamental concepts of who, how and why of money-laundering are explained adequately for someone looking for foundational understanding. Beyond that, you are better served accessing the FATF reports directly.
