Breach-of-contract damages, as Keller says, have "zero deterrent effect — there's no downside for committing the fraud." You either get away with it and pocket the gains, or you get caught, and have to give back the money. The way to stamp out fraud is to make the punishment greater than the potential gains.
If I'm ever dragged into court for a financial fraud, I want to throw myself on the mercy of Judge Richard C. Wesley.

"The other commonality isn't just the shrinking of the middle class, but a movement both up and down the ladder," Kochhar said. "There's a polarization. There are more in the upper tier and more in the lower, and fewer in the middle."
Nine out of 10 metro areas have fewer middle-income households now than in 2000, but not all of that shift is downward

“When ads are good, they connect people to interesting, useful brands businesses and products,” Graff wrote. “Unfortunately, not all ads are–some are for fake or harmful products, or seek to mislead users about the businesses they represent.”

"Bitcoin experts say that unmasking Satoshi Nakamoto would be significant for the industry. Not only would the proven founder likely hold some sway over the future of the bitcoin protocol, but Nakamoto may also hold enough bitcoin to influence its price ... equivalent to about $450 million at current exchange rates"
Australian tech entrepreneur Craig Wright has told the BBC he was the creator of controversial digital currency bitcoin after years of speculation about a person who until now has gone by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto.

Mitchell mainly addresses business "headlines" but political analogies (such as "voter fraud" and "welfare queen" hysteria) are relevant: [...] I said "Gee, you know I worked so hard, we've gotten so much done, and to read your story you think it's all about the fighting.'" The Post reporter responding, saying the paper would never run a story with a headline like "Two million commuters made it safely to work today," but it will run plenty of headlines saying "Six people were killed in a car crash out on the highway."
If U.S. society is such a beacon to the rest of the world, why is there such a battle between government and business?

'The Madden v. Midland Funding decision and another lawsuit have fueled worries about whether loan investors will be able to collect interest that in some cases is higher than what usury laws allow in some states ... The "letʼs hope we can keep getting around those pesky usury laws" idea is a business-model flaw worthy of its own column'
Peer-to-peer lending needs a secondary market.

"Telegraphed by the CFPB for months, the proposal inserts the agency into a simmering debate over whether the power to sue would actually benefit consumers or mostly just line the pockets of lawyers. Consumer advocates say class-action lawsuits are an essential tool to help the public win relief and to hold companies accountable for bad behavior. But the finance industry argues that curbing arbitration will result in higher legal costs that banks will ultimately pass on to consumers"
Suing your bank will become a lot easier if a U.S. regulator has its way.

In other Penny Wise, Pound Foolish news: "Bangladesh police investigators said last week that the bank's computer security measures were seriously deficient, lacking even basic precautions like firewalls and relying on used, $10 switches in its local networks"
The attackers who stole $81 million from the Bangladesh central bank probably hacked into software from the SWIFT financial platform that is at the heart of the global financial system, said security researchers at British defense contractor BAE Systems.
