Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. It is because white-collar criminal law is informed by everyday moral concepts such as cheating, deceiving, coercing, and the like that its moral character can seem so ambiguous. But such ambiguity should not dissuade us from its study. The white-collar offenses constitute an increasingly important part of our criminal law. If we are to really understand that law, we have no choice but to continue exploring the complex relationship between it and morality.

Keywords: white-collar crime; criminal law; morality
