Top Definition
Executives, Officers and Board Members of Incorporated and general business entities who hide behind articles of Incorporation or Law to shelter profits gained by ill-gotten means from large numbers of subsequently disenfranchised and disparaged individuals, resulting in economic recession and depression.

These members also include politicians who bail-out, pardon and shelter these offenders from severe and harsh punishments; sometimes also partaking in the gains either through political contributions, insider information, or kickbacks for sheltering Economic Terrorists.

Economic Terrorism is the act of disparaging and disenfranchising mass numbers of individuals in an economy through deceptive, unethical and illegitimate practices while in a position of public confidence or trust, for greed and personal gain.

Economic Terrorism, and not holding such terrorists accountable, has an end result of anarchy as people are taught it is acceptable to commit crimes without repercussion to ensure personal survival at the expense of others, irrespective of the rules and society's morals (degradation of an orderly society's morals through sinful means such as greed).
