The book examines the 12 categories of CCP Inc.’s multi-trillion dollar criminal activities, as well as exposing money laundering methodologies with “Chinese characteristics,” CCP Inc. mercantilism and corrosive capital, and various pernicious enablers.  Cassara puts it all together and explains the convergence.  The totality of CCP Inc.’s transnational criminality and money laundering is truly staggering. And it impacts all of us.  Combining facts, straight-forward explanations, case studies, as well as the author’s personal experiences, views and commentary, this book is valuable to the public and private sectors, the financial intelligence community, law enforcement, policy makers, as well as students and concerned citizens. 

John Cassara also recently testified in the U.S. Congress on “Follow the Money: The CCP’s Business Model Fueling the Fentanyl Crisis” before the U.S. House Subcommittee on National Security, Illicit Finance, and International Financial Institutions.
