If only we could send them to jail here. No banker or broker goes to jail here except for Madoff. Thanks for sharing

America while you murder your felons in the name of justice By strapping them to a bench and injecting poisons into their bodies it ill behoves you to criticize other countries who murder their citizens in the name of justice.it is time for you to stop capital punishment.Let Troy Davis be your last one

""This push to bank in a more Western style has ushered in improvements as well as temptations to swindle. According to the UN economist Vu Quang Viet, Vietnamese credit laws passed in 2010 “simply copied the lax US law now widely believed to be at least partially responsible for the financial debacle in 2008.”"

Yes, the lax laws in US need to be changed.

And, yes, the Banksters, Wall Streeters need to be put behind bars. "Unlike in America, where judges can’t sentence white-collar criminals to death, Vietnam can execute its citizens for a range of corporate crimes.". Oh gosh darn it, US cannot "execute" those "criminal" thieves. lol.

ty, Cal.

First, I don't believe death sentence is the right way to get rid of problems. Violence is never the right path.
2) I'm sure it's worse to be locked in behind bars for the rest of your life

Break the law, take the punishment.

Whilst it may seem extreme to some, ruining peoples lives by making them lose their money needs to be punished.

That's not a bad way to get rid of these crooks. Maybe we should send some of our brazen, egotistical, greedy criminals over there.

I'm not a person that advocates for the death penalty at all; however, you can bet bankers in Vietnam will think twice before perpetrating fraudulent and corrupt business dealings against its people.

It's a travesty of justice that American bankers have been allowed to skate away unscathed for their dirty dealings which practically brought the world financial markets to their knees.

Noted. I'm one who is against the death penalty. But, as long as we still have it here in the U.S.......what is the old joke?.....what do you call 10 banksters at the bottom of a river......

Thanks, Cal. It's too bad our corrupt bankers didn't go to jail. We were much to easy on them.

why not stuff them into a big pinata and have their victims take a few whacks at them?

We should send all the corrupt bankers to Vietnam (But I am against death penalty. However I favour Gloria H.'s idea. Thanks for sharing.

Irony I too rich in this story. We fought a war in Vietnam to impart democracy in part now it is the Vietnamese showing us true democracy i.e. equality under the law. Am not pro the death sentence, but a long, long time in jail, hell yes. Do not forget that 34 people committed suicide due to Lincoln savings & loans huge fraud. John McCain may have been white washed over his PARTICIPATION in that mess. My mother had to work till age 74 due to that heinous crime. I have never forgotten nor will I, seeing elderly people eating canned cat food because they lost their entire retirement savings. In Georgie Porgie buSHIT destruction of our economy and the robber barons of the 21st century get? Why more and bigger bonuses and higher salaries. I must admit having enourmous respect for the Vietnamese having the cojones to after these crooks. Hey Eric Holder where are your cojones? Has not really gone after the big kahunas, gee could it be because with the no limit on financial donations to political candidates they need them. I would love to see Elizabeth Warren run for president she knows the game and could bring some parity to the playing field.

Much as I think bankers should pay for their crimes, death is not appropriate. Let the punishment fit the crime.

Many Americans are still reeling from the big bust in 2008 +. These to big to fail jackasses got away with destruction of a nation and millions of people, yet very few paid for their crimes. Most are probably right back at creating the ripoffs once again. I support severe penalties for any financial adviser/banker who intentionally harms their customers. These crimes should be proven in court and automatically enforced with no plea bargaining.

The Vietnamese seem to have a good sense of justice. Our own criminal Bankers here in Britain should face the same punishment.
If we cannot shoot these criminals, we should at least be allowed to see them and their families put out on the streets with nothing and their money, fancy homes and other assets used to help the people they have robbed for years.

Although I am against the death penalty, perhaps we can make some exceptions.
