Description: When a person commits a white collar crime, prosecution is rare. And if a sentence is levied, it is usually minimal. This is also becoming an accepted fact in this country. Why do we have a double standard when it comes to corporate muggers? Why is there so little accountability in some of our most powerful institutions? Host Robert Lipsyte discusses the issue with Gary Edwards, executive director of the Ethics Resource Center; Russell Mokhiber, author of Corporate Crime and Violence; Georgette Bennett, author of Crimewarps: The Future of Crime in America; and Karen Hicks, a victim of A.H. Robins' Dalkon Shield. Original Broadcast Date: 4-19-89
