This video and transcript of two presentations at the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ's) "Research for the Real World" series focus on the investigation and prosecution of white-collar crime, the role of corporate ethics in America, and what policymakers and attorneys can learn from evidence of fraud.
One speaker is Dr. Henry Pontell, professor of criminology, law, and society, the School of Social Ecology and of Sociology in the School of Social Sciences at the University of California at Irvine. The second speaker is Dr. Sally Simpson, the chair of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Maryland. The two speakers address how they access white-collar crime data, as well as the similarities and differences between mortgage fraud, healthcare fraud, and the savings-and-loan crisis of the 1990s.
