Convenience in white-collar crime

Convenience in White-Collar Crime

Petter Gottschalk

Convenience is a concept that was theoretically mainly associated with efficiency in time savings. Today, convenience is associated with a number of other characteristics, such as reduced effort and reduced pain. Convenience is associated with terms such as fast, easy, and safe. Convenience says something about attractiveness and accessibility. A convenient individual is not necessarily bad or lazy. On the contrary, the person can be seen as smart and rational. Convenience orientation is conceptualized as the value that individuals and organizations place on actions with inherent characteristics of saving time and effort. Convenience orientation can be considered a value-like construct that influences behavior and decision-making.

The introduction outlines the scope of the book, and describes the problem of corruption, pointing out common criminal law enforcement challenges, and offering better anticorruption solutions by drawing on both legal and economic reasoning. The phenomenon of corruption is described and defined, as are other key concepts, such as what is meant when referring to the criminal justice system, or a country’s integrity mechanisms, and why is it necessary to identify efficiency criteria for criminal law enforcement. Law and economics offer a broad range of tools for controlling corruption; how they are used depends on mutual understanding and collaboration between the disciplines.
