American Greed

Show Summary

American Greed is an original business documentary television series from CNBC that examines the some of the biggest corporate and white collar crimes in the United States. Companies such as Tyco, Enron, HealthSouth, and WorldCom, that have exploited hard working Americans out of their equity investments, retirement funds, and employment due to corporate lavish spending and lack of oversight. In addition to profiling these high profile cases, American Greed covers stories about more common crimes such as medical fraud, money laundering, Ponzi schemes, embezzlement, insurance fraud, and murder. Host Stacy Keach narrates how each case started from beginning to end, with dramatizations, interviews with real life victims, and evidence recovered by respective agencies in charge of bringing each perpetrator to justice. American Greed, some people will do anything from money.

  • Good show, though I do wish they'd expand it

    IMHO they should do some episodes on some of the legal cons out there: everything from car leases to Rent to Own, get rich quick schemes on TV ads, payday advance places that are basically legal loan sharks, sports betting "advisers" selling their picks, etc.

    Then again their lawyers probably turned them away from that idea, if it was even raised, since they might get sued. A con artist who's already been duly convicted can't sue for defamation.

    I find the show very entertaining overall and a warning in general. I do wonder why in the age of the Internet where anyone can go to Vanguard or Fidelity's websites and invest for themselves so many people are giving money to these local "financial advisers" to invest for them.moreless
  • let america know there is more to greed than people who steal money

    Why don't you do episodes on people who steal from others legally. The CEO's, owners, etc. who jack prices up on everything to satisfy their need for money. Wake up America and take back our country, we have lost it to crooked politicians and people who could care less if you live or die!

  • All Episodes

    Not a review I'd just like to make a comment. I enjoy watching American Greed, it amazes me that the people who have been swindled on the show see fit to invest their ENTIRE life savings - which only says to me that they are just as guilty of being GREEDY as the one who has instituted the Ponzi would you invest your entire life savings they didn't do that when the opened up a 401/bank account/stock market or any other investment portfolio -- so again why give your ENTIRE life savings.moreless
