Section 4 is a lecture on corporate crimes.

Well, most business men want to make more money, but they don’t break the law to do so. So what factors make a group of men, yes, they are usually men, but women are by no means immune from this temptation, decide to step outside the law. In the next few weeks, we will be looking into this question with a lot of case studies in some depth. We will also try to divide corporate crime into several categories and see what they share in common in terms of the psychology and organizational culture of those who commit them. And also we will also look into the legal, social and political settings in which these crimes occur. A particularly interesting aspect of corporate crime is a process of detection, trial and punishment. It often seems that this type of crime goes on for an unreasonable length of time before it is detected by the authorities. Is this true and if so, why? There is also a common perception that people found guilty of corporate crimes are treated much more leniently by the court than, for example, your common everyday thief or even murder even. Is this true and if so, why? I mentioned that we would divide corporate crime into categories and look at some specific cases. What categories can we think of? Well, one is that of product safety. Where a company markets a product that it knows to be unsafe. One of the landmark cases in corporate criminology of this type is the Ford Pinto case. Ford was accused of rushing an unsafe car and in 1980, there was the criminal trial of the Ford Motor company for reckless homicide. We would look at the research on white collar crime and studies on organizational culture and structure to examine the lack of safety of recall regulations that may have contributed to as many as 500 deaths.

From then on, she has been mentoring IELTS aspirants. She joined IELTSMaterial about a year ago, and her contributions have been exceptional. Her essay ideas and vocabulary have taken many students to a band 9.
