“After his brilliant earlier work “Making People Pay” Dr. Sibichen Mathew now turned his splendid mind to an equally important topic of white collar crimes. Crimes, are the result of the power of motive on character. The rewards of crime are far, richer and higher than the chances and risks of detection and punishment. While the resourcefulness of the criminal mind seems inexhaustible in its evil power it draws strength from the conniving or negligent conduct of the Regulators charged with prevention of crime.
“This is a well-researched collation of how one gets cheated, in India and abroad, and of what governments have done to curb it. It is written well, expected of an established author. It will resonate, especially with victims of one or the other of the cited instances. However, there is no cure for human cupidity.”
“Mathew pieces together the multiple dimensions of white collar crime to come up with a comprehensive and illuminating picture. Moving easily from popular discourse to academic findings and back, he provides an account that is as thought provoking as it is readable.”
"While jewelry heists and unexplained homicides were the mysteries of yore, today a plethora of white collar crimes capture the public imagination. At the base of every mega public scam are several such crimes. In this useful book, Dr. Sibichen Mathew explains how and why these white collar crimes happen, and what can be done to make them more difficult to commit."
“For all of us who have been cheated -- and there is no exception--- this book is a wake -up call. In a lucid style, and pulling no punches, Sibichen Mathew lays bare all manner of white collar crimes, to keep us awake and alert, and to enable us to recognise and respond. Truly a compelling and convincing read.”
"This book is the result of six years of painstaking research and analysis on the ramifications of white-collar crimes. Dr. Mathew makes a compelling case of what can be done to curb this menace and the restitutionary remedies that would be effective. This is a long overdue commentary on this neglected subject and I hope that this book gets the attention it deserves."
