White collar crimes and Ponzi schemes seem to be happening more often than not in today’s business world. Our text describes White Collar Crimes as a violation committed by individuals and corporations of fraud, bribery, theft and conspiracy to commit (Melvin, S. P. Z Pg. 555(2011) and Ponzi as a fraudulent investment to make investors or profit holders to pay for their own return on their initial investment.

Tycoons of Industry Essay I personally think that industrial tycoons such as Carnegie, Rockefeller and Vanderbilt should be remembered as Captains of Industry.
