Scholars
and the general public differ intellectually, ideologically, and
politically in their definitions and views of crime, and a significant
aspect of American society is its heavy emphasis on economic success. In
this context, the pressure to succeed and to keep corporate profits up
drives many to commit white-collar crimes. Moreover, white-collar crimes
are often dismissed as just another shrewd business practice by an
ambitious executive in order to keep ahead of competitors. In contrast,
many individuals have been victims of street crimes or know such
victims. The results of a direct physical assault or a burglarized home
are relatively easy to observe. What is your opinion on the subject?
