The legal system, through lax enforcement and reduced penalties, tolerates and in some ways, may even encourage white-collar crime. This Wall Street Journal story investigates how the FBI, in its national crime-reporting efforts, gathers far more information on such crimes as car theft and burglary than on fraud, even though the latter causes far greater financial losses. White-collar criminals also receive consistently lighter sentences and less law-enforcement attention than many other criminals. (May 12, 1995)
