Infographic on White Collar Crime

Infographic on White Collar Crime
Gould School of Law, University of Southern California

The University of Southern California's Gould School of Law has posted an “infographic” on the Internet focusing on white collar crime.

The infographic states that “White collar crime is as old as business itself, with the pioneers of the art form resorting to crude measures to bilk others out of their hard earned currency.” USC notes that one of the earliest recorded white collar crimes concerned an importer who, after taking out a loan to acquire goods for sale, planned to fake a shipwreck and make off with the goods and money.

Another such scheme was the genesis of the ruling of the Lord Chief Justice, the 1st Earl of Mansfield [William Murray], in the Zone case [Gregson v Gilbert (1783) 3 Doug. KB 232]. Lord Mansfield's decision contributed to the adoption of the British Slave Trade Act of 1807 [47 Geo 3 Sess 1 c 36 ], which abolished slave trade in the British empire.
