Hello Professor and Class!

For this week’s discussion, I am going to incorporate politics and white-collar crimes.

White collar crimes are crimes that’ve been committed in from a business or large organization standpoint and have influenced the finances of these industries. It doe not necessarily mean that you have committed a crime that involves physical injury, assault, or those involving violence.

Policital white collar crimes usually involves someone with a public official status with their actions benefitting only themselves or their party. This may include accepting bribes, may include corruption, extortion, inside trading, and other, again, involving finances and monetary gains (Political White Collar Crime: Definition & Examples).

What are some modern day and real-life political white collar crimes we’ve seen today?

Although this particular crime was not done terribly recently, the Savings and Loan Scandal of the 1980s is a notorious crime having been done in the U.S.

I have attached the link to further read on this time in history.
