Economic Crime

In line with Joseph W. Koletar

about Economic Crime in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

The phrase economic crime refers to a dizzying range of offenses. The concept is complicated by the fact that most crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) have as their primary motive financial gain. Despite this, not all crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) are defined as economic crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary). Thus, armed robbery, extortion, and burglary are meant to achieve economic gain and they rely on either active or passive elements of force to achieve their objective, but they are not defined as economic crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary). What the term economic crime does encompass, though, depending upon its usage, is corporate crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary), white-collar crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary), occupational crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary), governmental program frauds, and street crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) of an economic nature. Economic crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) are the opposite of good government or government transparency. Economic crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) can be committed by a wide range of individuals or groups, including a sovereign entity such as a nation state, a legal entity such as a corporation, a group of people, or a lone individual.
