Bank confidentiality and terrorist finance



The Federalist Society is giving a half-day conference this Tuesday, Apr. 26 in Washington (details here) on the Bank Secrecy Act, which on a rationale of terrorism-fighting is invading bank depositors' privacy to an unprecedented extent, as well as inflicting onerous regulatory burdens on both banks and their customers. For more, see Overlawyered, Apr. 11, and the column I did some years ago in Reason. Further: Wired News follows up on the general issue.
