White Collar Crime - International
White Collar Crime is not unique to the United States. A new paper is listed on SSRN, although the abstract is all that now appears. The paper by Amarjeet Sinth, discusses white collar crime in the context of Singapore. The abstract states that the piece examines "the lack of comprehensive statistical data and the dearth of documented material on such crimes."
This same problem is true to the United States. Although much has been written about white collar crime in the United States, the reporting systems do not categorize crime this way and the amorphous definition of the word can present problems in deciding what is included and what is not. Perhaps this is a universal problem.
