Lying, Cheating, and Stealing by Stuart P. Green

Book Description

Where should the line between serious criminal fraud and lawful 'puffing' be drawn? What constitutes tax evasion beyond mere 'tax avoidance'? What separates obstruction of justice from 'zealous advocacy', or insider trading from 'savvy investing'? Can we meaningfully distinguish bribery from 'campaign contributions', or perjury from 'wiliness' on the witness stand? A look at some of the most high profile white collar crime cases in recent history will quickly reveal that there can sometimes be a fine line between serious fraudulent conduct and behaviour which, though it might be shrewd, crafty, or even devious, is not ultimately criminal. According to the traditional conception of the criminal law, penal sanctions should be used as a 'last resort', applicable only to conduct that is truly and unambiguously blameworthy. White-collar crime poses a serious challenge to this traditional view. This is the first book to use the tools of moral and legal theory as a means to examine a range of specific white-collar offenses, aiming to develop and apply a methodology that will allow us to make meaningful distinctions between genuine white collar criminality and merely aggressive business behavior. Particular attention is paid to the concept of moral wrongfulness, which is described in terms of violations of a range of familiar, but nevertheless powerful, moral norms that inform and shape the leading white-collar criminal offenses - norms against not only lying, cheating, and stealing, but also coercion, exploitation, disloyalty, promise-breaking, and defiance of law. It is through such analysis that the whole moral fabric of white-collar crime is brought into sharp relief.

Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle by Stuart P. Green Thirteen Ways to Steal a Bicycle, Hardback (June 2012)

Theft causes greater economic injury than any other criminal offense. Yet fundamental questions about what should count as stealing remain unresolved. Green assesses our legal framework at a time when our economy commodifies intangibles (intellectual property, information, ideas, identities, and virtual property) and theft grows more sophisticated.

Lying, Cheating, and Stealing by Stuart P. Green Lying, Cheating, and Stealing, Paperback (March 2007)

This is the first book to take a comprehensive look at white collar criminal offenses from the perspective of moral and legal theory, focusing on the way in which key white-collar crimes such as fraud, perjury, bribery, extortion, insider trading, and tax evasion are shaped and informed by a range of familiar moral norms.
