內容簡介

這是應該被收錄進教科書的現代貪汙洗錢代表案件!

二零零九年,馬來西亞富商劉特佐剛從華頓商學院畢業,在經濟危機尚未落定的塵埃中,他已開始進行一場影響了全世界經濟系統的弊案。

1MDB(一馬發展公司)是馬來西亞的國有投資基金,時任的馬來西亞首相被指控挪用該公司近七億美元的公款,其弊案的重點關係人就是富商劉特佐,此事件不僅在馬來西亞,也在全世界引起軒然大波,。

此弊案雖發生在馬來西亞,但其中金錢流向和其他國家高層有關,各國知名媒體都爭相報導,劉特佐自弊案被揭發後至今尚未露面,甚至一度傳出藏匿於台灣,全案審查仍在進行中。

本書即為介紹此弊案,甚至有美國官員表示,這一個案件應該被收錄進相關教科書中,因為這是現代貪汙洗錢的代表案件。

The dust had yet to settle on the global financial crisis in 2009 when an unlikely Wharton grad set in motion a fraud of unprecedented gall and magnitude--one that would come to symbolize the next great threat to the global financial system. The nuts and bolts of the scheme were shockingly simple: A young, big-talking, huckster persuaded the Prime Minister of Malaysia to create an investment fund that he would direct from the shadows, raised more than ten billion dollars from global investors with the aid of Goldman Sachs and others, and over the next half decade siphoned off no less than $5 billion: money used to finance elections; to purchase luxury real estate in London, New York, and Los Angeles; to produce Hollywood films, including The Wolf of Wall Street--and to throw champagne-drenched parties around the world. Low's largesse also won him friendships with Hollywood actors, Victoria's Secret models, and even with a member of President Obama's inner circle.

More staggering still, no one seemed to notice--not the global banks, such as Goldman and J.P. Morgan, who turned a blind eye to shady transfers of hundreds of millions of dollars; and not the international auditors, central bankers, and official financial-system watchdogs.

At the center of this fraud was Jho Low--a character so preposterous he seems made up. Federal agents who helped unravel Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme say the Jho Low affair, when its full contours become known, will become a textbook case for tracking transnational fraud in the modern age. BILLION DOLLAR WHALE will become a classic, harrowing parable about the financial world in the 21st century.
