Yesterday, the FCPA Blog introduced a new article entitled "Courageous Correspondents: Recent Foreign Corrupt Practices Act-Related Scholarship that Rocked the Boat." The article is featured in the online supplement, On Remand, to volume 46 of the New England Law Review, and may be downloaded here. The article mentions the "too-big-to-debar" debate, which Professor Stevenson and I first wrote about back in April (see here), as having "rocked the boat" by helping "everyone understand why debarment has never been used as a remedy in an FCPA enforcement action."
The Project on Government Oversight (POGO) has also joined the discussion. In a letter urging Congress to reject a proposed amendment that would relax the FCPA's anti-bribery provisions, POGO cited our research on debarment as evidence that "[e]xcessive enforcement of the FCPA is not the problem; lack of enforcement is." The letter is available here.
Earlier this week I responded to POGO's letter in a guest post on the FCPA Blog entitled "Amending the FCPA: If It Ain't Broke...." (see here).
