Machiavelli said repeatedly that the leader should not worry about being called a ‘miser’, which is a person who hoards wealth and spends as little money as possible, or a greedy person, because of the fact that they are saving the money for war themselves so they do not have to collect excessive taxes from their people. Most people would greatly accept this graciously. Lao Tzu, on the other hand, did not believe the leaders should keep any money for themselves. He believed in spending it on the people to keep them happy. The leader should not be worried about material things anyway, according to him.
This “spend now, pay later” approach crept into the housing market with the self assessment mortgages being advised to those you couldn’t afford the going rate of houses and soon became the cause of the bust. The estate agents of the early 00’s were advising to use the self assessment mortgages because it meant that the buyer could gain a higher loan by lying about their income. Asymmetric information was a part of the failure of the housing market because the estate agent knew that not all of customers would be able to pay their mortgage, but they would still get a cut of the money paid. The banks also didn’t mind because if they couldn’t afford the mortgage they could take the deposit and resell the house. This was fine at the start because people were successfully paying on time and banks weren’t losing money.

They are limited to how much money they can give a player. It’s their money they can give them however much they want of it, but when they do they think that there money is going to a hard, deadtitcated, worthy player, instead it was going to a cheater. This is where the truth comes out, by these played breaking the rules it just as if they are stilling money from the league. It really hit you hard when you think about that money could have gone to a young, promising, hardworking rookie. Another big letdown is all of the money that they are getting paid from is coming from the loving fans that they lied to.
For example, former governor of Virginia, Robert F. McDonnell was charged with illegally accepting gifts, vacations, and loans from a wealthy businessman who wanted special treatment from State government.

Some companies opt not to prosecute white collar criminals simply because it might cost too much to go after a criminal, and it also might be difficult to prove the wrong doing. Some criminals might hide behind the misjudgment theory and battle their way out of court. The problem with not prosecuting white collar criminals is that they might continue to commit their crimes, thus continuously affecting society.
Wiedeking felt that VW could gain more profits if they stopped supporting Bugatti and Phaeton, which upset Piëch and his vision. It can be said that both men are somewhat at fault for the conflict. Before the merger, they seemed to not have clearly communicated their company visions with each other. Instead, once the companies merged, problems grew between Wiedeking and Piëch. The conflict handling style shown by both Wiedeking and Piëch would be that of ‘Forcing.’ Forcing would be using formal authority or power to satisfy one’s own concerns without the concerns of the party that are involved in the conflict (Williams, n.d.).

• “Hanging Colby was doubtless against the law, and if the authorities learned in advance what the plan was they would very likely come in and try to mess everything up.” • “Colby said he thought drinks would be nice but was worried about the expense.
