Eliza Foss narrates stories of corporate corruption with an investigative reporter's evenhanded modulation and a judge's voice of authority. She sounds stern and informative. Author Jennifer Taub adds new details on familiar tales of corruption, such as stock sales by politicians privy to confidential COVID-19 information. She also offers a new framework for the analysis of white-collar crime--it primarily benefits elite white males, and it creates a two-tiered justice system. Although Taub proposes some fixes, listeners may come away disillusioned by the overwhelming greed and lack of moral fiber of the perpetrators. To quote Taub's summation of one stock analyst's crime spree: "He didn't just cross the line, he erased it." Club Fed, anyone? R.W.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2021]
