Economic crime is, by definition, crime committed to gain profit within an otherwise legitimate business. Examples are illegal pollution, brand name infringement and tax evasion. The victims of such crimes may be private citizens, businesses and the state. The leading authors in this vital new book survey recent advances in the study of economic crime from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

The key areas examined are:

• the economics of corporate crime
• enforcing regulation
• law and economics of environmental crime
• corporate fraud and tax evasion
• the history of economic crime

This important volume will be of interest to scholars and policymakers involved in examining and regulating economic crime in both developed and developing countries.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book brings together a collection of essays that gives the reader an up-to-date perspective on the current research in corporate crime, ranging from regulatory and tax non-compliance to fraud, money-laundering and the role of organised crime in legitimate enterprises. The essays don’t provide all the answers but certainly ask all the right questions. This book will be of value to regulators, law enforcement agents, criminologists, economists and lawyers, and all students of the economics of crime.’
– Kent Matthews, Cardiff University, UK
