William K. Black on MF Global & Jon Corzine Culpability
From Goldman Sachs to governor to grilling, Jon Corzine former CEO of the now bankrupt MF Global testifies on Capitol Hill. He claims he is clueless about how and where the possible $1.2 billion dollars of his client's money is that is missing. How has all of this happened three years after the financial crisis when Wall Street was supposed to be reined in? And the golden boys of Wall Street have their Goldman tentacles spread over the MF Global case. The head of the CFTC - MF Global's regulator - has recused himself from the MF Global probe because he worked with Jon Corzine at Goldman Sachs. We speak to William K. Black, a former regulator who during the Savings and Loan crisis oversaw more than 10,000 criminal referrals, 1,000 felony convictions, and where hundreds of bankers went to prison.
