I’ve advocated harsher penalties for corporations, and I’m second to only one (Alexandra Wrage) in my distaste for bribery. But I hate the Walmart case. In my humble opinion, Walmart should get a nominal fine via an NPA….
You’d think I’d be salivating over the prospect of Walmart getting a massive fine. It’s a huge US multinational company which went overseas and bribed government officials in order to gain an improper advantage for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Straight out of 15 USC sec. 78dd-1(a). And like I said, I’ve advocated for larger fines.
Why do I hate the Walmart case so much? Let’s lay it out.
