Does anybody watch this show on CNBC? It's a pretty interesting show I must say. Talks about fraud within rags to riches type of stories within corporate companies. Anywhere from millionaires to billionaires. Sort of teaches you to learn from others stupidity and business greed.

its not just american, to be fair.

its a global phenomenon by now.

the so called communist party leaders in china are all filthy rich.

america is at least honest about it


Absolutely.
Chinese party bosses are probably the richest "government" in the world.

Communism is there just to keep the masses humble and in poverty. To justify the single-party rule.




Oh hoh:

Wen Jiabao   Premier   $2.7 billion (October 2012)[2]   (China)

quite a communist right there  Shocked
Has more money than fukin' Oubama who also has hefty 10.1 million dollar fortune according to wikip.

No, they just literally don't have cable TV in Canada.  They have the analog antenna and video stores where they rent VHS tapes of Kids in the Hall and Trailer Park Boys.  Lips sealed

They're really reaching however, with some of those stories. Ie, the guy in SoCal that was printing money successfully for quite a long time and brought in like 2 or 3 more guys to help. They got away with it for some time and were finally busted. That different from our Govt printing money on a whim, all the time.

Sure, theres a few stories about crooked Dr's and this and thats. Their mostly all the same story though. People getting in over their head and running minor ponzi schemes. Again, they should do a show focusing purely on the greed and actions of those working within our govt and what they're up to and how they all became so goddamn rich they just decided one day, "hey, i'll run for some form of office since I'm bored".

As long as government leaders get their cut under the table, communist governments will allow for individual wealth.  It's shake down like the Mafia. The Mafia will always convince someone that they need their protection. What everyone knows it's protection from the one you're giving the money to.
