By Dominique Labarrière

Que ce soit pour acquérir pouvoir, argent ou gloire, certains individus ont su déployer des trésors de ruse et d’ingéniosité dans les arnaques, les tromperies et les manipulations afin d’exploiter los angeles crédulité de leurs contemporains. « l. a. fin justifie les moyens » paraît être le credo de ces Machiavel qui semblent avoir surgi à toutes les périodes de l’Histoire.
Dominique Labarrière raconte certaines de ces entreprises les plus stupéfiantes, qui secouèrent parfois violemment l’opinion publique. Il en décrit les mécanismes et met au jour leurs implications humaines ainsi que leurs enjeux avec des conséquences qui, le plus souvent, dépassèrent ce qu’avaient prévu les apprentis sorciers qui les ont ourdies. Parmi celles-ci : l’affaire du collier de los angeles reine, celle de Panama, les pretend carnets d’Hitler, los angeles fausse mine d’or de Bre-X Busang, los angeles guerre politique sans pitié de Clearstream, l’intoxication de masse effectuée autour des emprunts russes, los angeles farce coûteuse des avions renifleurs, le trafic de décorations sous l. a. IIIe République, les « chefs-d’oeuvre » du génial faussaire Wolfgang Beltracchi et, pour finir, l’escroquerie flamboyante de Bernard Madoff, le gourou de Wall Street.
