And the practice is about as old as money itself. But how does it actually work? Delena D. Spann describes the ins and outs of money laundering. Lesson by Delena D. Spann, animation by Juan M.

I’ve found a couple of bills in my washed pants afterwards, am I going to jail? The federal reserve shouldn’t be any different regarding their practices. Besides the animation, I found it distracting and took away it’s purpose of what exactly means to have money laundered and why’s “illegal”. Then again, it wouldn’t matter to me to know what’s it like to have at least a made quarter million and where to put it at ..

You could just get involved in the "fine art" world and do what the wealthy elites of the world do. Laundering money between nations through art and antiques or beyond this even shell companies. For example. The Clinton's "non profit". You donate to your nonprofit and you write off the donation on your taxes and then control the money in the nonprofit.

The solution to the problem of "crime" is quite simple - get rid of "law." If nothing is "legal" or "illegal," then "crime" cannot exist by definition.
