International Journal of Economics and Accounting (IJEA), Vol. 5, No. 3, 2014

Abstract: Analysing individual acts committed by financial criminals such as B. Madoff requires not only addressing the collective perception of individual responsibility but also the need for shared responsibility in the fight against financial crime.

Engaging the necessary resources to effectively and collectively combat this scourge cannot be achieved if analysis is restricted to the nature of criminal acts and motives of the perpetrators.
