Why We Let White-Collar Criminals Get Away With Their Crimes
James B. Stewart
In “Big Dirty Money,” Jennifer Taub, a law professor, shows how the justice system caters to wealthy white-collar criminals at the expense of American taxpayers.
White-collar crime in America “costs victims an estimated $300 bn - $800 bn pr year," vs “street-level ‘property’ crimes, incl burglary, larceny and theft, cost us far less — around $16 billion annually, according to the F.B.I.”

Jennifer Taub's "Big Dirty Money" is a polemic against America's failure to curb the criminal tendencies of the very rich
