London estate agents snared offering to help 'Russian crook' launder cash through mansions | UK | News | Daily Express
"When he reveals that he needs to remain anonymous in order to hide his criminal activity, the estate agent says he has encountered similar situations before and advises him to find a lawyer who "can create the package that works for you and for the seller".

Money laundering expert Jonathan Fisher QC, told the programme: "By continuing with these discussions, the estate agent goes into this with both feet. Let’s face it, it’s mucky.""

China Trade Halts Locks Up $2.2 Trillion of Shares, Freezing Market | Hacker News
The worst continued to worsen. What looked one day like the end proved on the next day to have been only the beginning. Nothing could have been more ingeniously designed to maximize the suffering, and also to insure that as few people as possible escape the common misfortune. The fortunate speculator who had funds to answer the first margin call presently got another and equally urgent one, and if he met that there would still be another. In the end all the money he had was extracted from him and lost. The man with the smart money, who was safely out of the market when the first crash came, naturally went back in to pick up bargains. The bargains then suffered a ruinous fall. Even the man who waited for volume of trading to return to normal and saw Wall Street become as placid as a produce market, and who then bought common stocks would see their value drop to a third or a fourth of the purchase price in the next 24 months. The Coolidge bull market was a remarkable phenomenon. The ruthlessness of its liquidation was, in its own way, equally remarkable.
The rumors in China about malevolent foreign influence on the market also echo the 1929 crash. Galbraith again:
What was perhaps the last word on the policy of reassurance was said by Simeon D. Fess, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee: "Persons high in Republican circles are beginning to believe that there is some concerted effort on foot to utilize the stock market as a method of discrediting the Administration. Every time an Administration official gives out an optimistic statement about business conditions, the market immediately drops."

U.S. Dot-Com Bubble Was Nothing Compared to Today’s China Prices - Bloomberg Business
The industry is leading gains in China’s $6.9 trillion stock market, sending valuations to an average 220 times reported profits, the most expensive level among global peers. When the Nasdaq Composite Index peaked in March 2000, technology companies in the U.S. had a mean price-to-earnings ratio of 156.
Like the rise of the Internet two decades ago, China’s technology shares are being fueled by a compelling story: the ruling Communist Party is promoting the industry to wean Asia’s biggest economy from its reliance on heavy manufacturing and property development. In an echo of the late 1990s, Chinese stocks are also gaining support from lower interest rates, a boom in initial public offerings and an influx of money from novice investors.
