John Zdanowicz, professor and Florida International Bankers Association Chair in the Department of Finance and Real Estate, was quoted extensively in an article titled “Money launderers wash billions through international trade,” the cover story in Business Monday in The Miami Herald on May 11, 2009. Since 1990, Zdanowicz has worked with monthly data the federal government uses to calculate the balance of trade. He analyzes transactions and notes anomalies. The story cites examples of such anomalies, and includes Zdanowicz’s observations about the complexity of dealing with the problem. The article, which can be found at http://business.fiu.edu/pdf/PrintMay2009/money-laundering-through-international-trade.pdf, also quotes Jerry Haar, an expert on international trade and associate dean for international affairs and projects.
