A Rogue’s Gallery of Economic Criminals

Our Rogue’s Gallery:

An Economic Criminal is a person or organization responsible for economic hardship, chaos, and for contributing to the destruction of a nation’s economy as a result of their own greed, lust for personal power, arrogance, ignorance, and sometimes criminal intent.

These are some of the more famed of the Economic Criminal Class in the world today, focusing on the recent past and results we see coming in the near future. Though they harken from many walks of life, one cannot help but note the similarities in their character...not only in their complete lack of ethics, but in their complete lack of remorse.
