Description

Econ Dinner and a Movie presents: The Laundromat


When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin (Meryl Streep) begins investigating a fake insurance policy, only to find herself down a rabbit hole of questionable dealings that can be linked to a Panama City law firm and its vested interest in helping the world's wealthiest citizens amass even larger fortunes. The charming -- and very well-dressed -- founding partners Jürgen Mossack (Gary Oldman) and Ramón Fonseca (Antonio Banderas) are experts in the seductive ways shell companies and offshore accounts help the rich and powerful prosper. They are about to show us that Ellen's predicament only hints at the tax evasion, bribery and other illicit absurdities that the super wealthy indulge in to support the world's corrupt financial system.

Join us for dinner, watch The Laundromat, and hear from Craig Weldon*, Delaware Department of Justice Chief Special Investigator. Craig's presentation will focus on scams, corruption, fraud investigations, and how to protect yourself against them.


Catered Dinner and 2.5 Professional Development Hours Awarded

The unit also protects the public from fraud by ensuring that investment firms and professionals financial advisers are properly registered and by proactively conducting investor education and outreach.
