In April 2013, Frédéric Pierucci was arrested in New York by the FBI and accused of bribery. The US authorities imprisoned him for more than two years - including fourteen months in a notorious maximum-security prison. In doing so, they forced Alstom to pay the biggest financial penalty ever imposed by the United States. In the end, Alstom also gave up areas of control to General Electric, its biggest American competitor.
Frédéric's story unpacks how the United States is using corporate law as an economic weapon against its own allies. One after the other, some of the world's largest companies are being actively destabilised to the benefit of the US, in acts of economic sabotage that seem to be the beginning of what's to come...
To say this is the best in 2020 is an understatement. This book is going to change the world. Like Fred said, it's a huge surprise those stories, news, and stories went unnoticed to the public. The world is predictably numb to all these, subconsciously or chose to subconsciously ignore all these and succumb to the dark secret of the American power.
Thank you for putting all these together, in such a precise, concise, logical, and "interesting" way. It's a joy to read your book, and yet between the lines, I could feel the excruciating pain. It takes so much, courage, endurance, perseverance, and a lot more, to be able to put all this down. Fearing the FBI would be after you and your family all the time, even at this moment. But now we have the world watching you. Out of so many, you are the only one standing up to let the world know.
The American Trap is the best political books to read on the corporate between US and other countries also on the judicial systems in US. Recommended.
