Abstract

The intuition tat poorly performing corporations are more likely to engage in crime is found through-out the contemporary literature on the economics of corporate misconduct. Yet little evidence of such a relationship exists. This paper presents new evidence on the relationship between prior performance and corporate crime using panel data on public corporations, 1975-92.
