Yet this is the model on which we have built our so-called "financial system." There is essentially zero risk of prosecution; this is proved at this point with the Statute of Limitations having either run or being close to doing so for most of the crimes during the housing bubble and its aftermath, being limited in most cases to either five or seven years.
These financial and economic criminal acts occurred during a time of a declared conflict during which American forces were in conflict(remember Congress passed an resolution for Iraq and I think Afghanistan). They hurt our ability to fight effectively, by distracting the executive branch.
The statute of limitations for treacherous acts (Treason) does not have an expiration. A truly incorruptible Attorney General (it won't be a Democrat or Republican) could in essence charge those who committed financial crimes as acts of treason against the Republic at a time of a declared resolution of conflict. Better yet, they could be construed as terrorism and then all of the rules for terrorist acts and terrorists could be applied (maybe 20-30 years in detention without counsel or a trial?).
