Ronald Pol: “Anti-money laundering: The world’s least effective policy experiment? Together, we can fix it”

Ronald F. Pol wrote the paper “Anti-money laundering: The world’s least effective policy experiment? Together, we can fix it“, published on Taylor & Francis Online.

From the abstract:

It finds that the anti-money laundering policy intervention has less than 0.1 percent impact on criminal finances, compliance costs exceed recovered criminal funds more than a hundred times over, and banks, taxpayers and ordinary citizens are penalized more than criminal enterprises. The data are poorly validated and methodological inconsistencies rife, so findings cannot be definitive, but there is a huge gap between policy intent and results. The scale of the problem not addressed by “solutions” repeatedly “fixing” the same perceived issues suggest that blaming banks for not “properly” implementing anti-money laundering laws is a convenient fiction. Fundamental problems may lie instead with the design of the core policy prescription itself.
