Inside the Minds of White Collar Criminals

  • WSJ podcast interviews a man who interviewed White collar criminals
    • Bernie Madoff
      • Interesting because he screwed over people he knew. Unlike others who scammed people they did not know.
  • Many were not remorseful about their actions. They could not identify who they actually hurt.
  • They have charisma and are smart.
    • Personal note: I already had assumed this.
  • Did not interview any women.
    • There are less woman in field. But also maybe they have more empathy?
      • Personal note: I don’t know where I stand on this. Need to think about it.
  • Sometimes it’s about reputation and pushing so hard that it makes people want to cheat. It’s not always about the money.
