MLB Standings, the Luxury Tax and FCPA Investigation Costs


I thought about these overall team costs whilst reading a recent article by Jaclyn Jaeger in the Compliance Week Magazine, entitled “High Cost of Conducting Full FCPA Investigations”. In her article, Jaeger reported the costs of some very large and ongoing Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations, which are reflected in the FCPA Investigation Cost Box Score below, remember at this point we do not know what the Wal-Mart investigative costs are to-date.
