Anyone who reads the newspapers or listens to our public officials knows two things about white-collar crime: First, white-collar criminals are just like street criminals. They may wear nicer suits and commit their crimes in boardrooms instead of alleyways, but their motivation is the same: greed. And second, white-collar offenders are highly rational. The way to deter their conduct is to ensure that the risks and consequences of being caught outweigh the rewards. As former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in 2012, white-collar criminals “are highly skilled at cost-benefit analysis” and “weigh the risk of getting caught against the potential reward, and they decide it’s worth the risk.” Stewart, James. “In a New Era of Insider Trading, It’s Risk vs. Reward Squared.” New York Times, Dec. 7, 2012.
