‘White collar’ crime


‘White collar’ crime, financial fraud, exploitation and dereliction of duty go on all the time because the perpetrators simply aren’t ‘in touch’ enough with their society to be bothered. They can’t get past their sense that it’s all just a game, survival of the fittest, cat and mouse with regulators and authorities and voters, a contest that gives them the same kind of buzz as sports. They blind themselves to the sidelines, to the ‘downside’, the dark side: fellow human beings going hungry and homeless because the game is never a level playing field.
