The moral foundation of collective action against economic crimes
Views & Download
Economic and financial crimes, defined generally as crimes against property, have been increasing rapidly in recent years. In the 2014 Global Economic Crime Survey it is noted that among the 5,000 business organisations across the world responding, 37 percent report being victims of economic crime, up from 30 percent in 2009. No country, society, culture or community has been immune. The financial crisis focused attention on elite white-collar crimes while empirical research was pointing to another alarming development: “the everyday crimes of the middle class”, committed by those “[...} at the very core of contemporary society” (Karstedt and Farrall, 2007).
