Almost every fraud is a very old fraud

Almost every fraud is a very old fraud The Neanderthal Man… WHAT primitive passions… WHAT mad desires drove him on…? He held them all in the grip of deadly terror… nothing could keep him from the money he claimed as his own!
"The man who is admired for the ingenuity of his larceny is almost always rediscovering some earlier form of fraud. The basic forms are all known, have all been practiced. The manners of capitalism improve. The morals may not."

– John Kenneth Galbraith
