Common Denominators in White Collar Crime: I'm Special, You're Special, Let's Fleece them in Style
AbstractCulture, cults and character are shown to be the “Three C’s” of graft and corruption. The notion of “conversation” is briefly allowed to link the perpetrator to his alter ego, victim or partner-in-crime, wherein are forged the origins of means, motive and opportunity—as also the ballast of the paper. The argument is made that a trained eye should expect the close interplay of culture and pathology, especially in matters of white collar crime, which is used throughout as the focus. By way of summary, these crimes are perpetrated by those with bipolar traits operating in a context of cultural permissiveness, and with selected tools (attitudes, e.g.) of cultural provenance.
