trials. Not just in Germany, but elsewhere, in the aftermath of the war. People were hung, shamed, jailed, stripped of their companies, stripped of their positions.

Prior to the war, in the United States, a great commission investigating the financial sector resulted in jail sentences as well, not to mention loss of position and stature or confiscatory taxation of the wealthy, with high marginal tax rates continuing until the 1960's.

Nothing like that of any sort is happening today.
