White-Collar Criminality

Sinan Çaya


A quite interesting aspect of economics involves profits of illegal origin in a given society. One can talk about a certain spectrum of illegality ranging in various degrees incrementally, from untaxed informal economy, disregard of copyrights, black market, contraband, counterfeit money on to sheer criminal activities like embezzlement, swindling or forgery which target specific individuals; for the purpose of gain. In this respect, certain economic endeavors can be observed to go hand in hand with unscrupulous ways of victimizing people.
