This article seeks to deconstruct some of the hubris associated with corporate capitalism's creation of a new financial sector based on fraud - junk debt, credit default swaps and derivatives. How has it come to pass that fraud has become the basis of corporate performance and leadership remuneration? Is criminal fraud the heart of global capitalism and a criminogenic Neo-liberalism? This article explores these issues, qualitatively, through a forensic examination of emerging re-regulatory policies in the United States and Australia. The conceptual framework of the article is located within the notion of economic, state crimes against democracy.
