9780674368316: Too Big to Jail: How Prosecutors Compromise with Corporations
Críticas:

Garrett offers a cri de coeur" for more corporate criminal prosecutions. Using data that he compiled, the author demonstrates that the U.S. Department of Justice has been inconsistent in its enforcement of relevant laws What distinguishes this title from others is its clear discussion of the corporate misdeeds. It contrasts pious pronouncements by companies with details of greed and evasion. Garrett questions why high-ranking corporate officers are not prosecuted. The government, he maintains, lacks the resources and inclination to close errant businesses. Instead, it prefers fines, deferred prosecution agreements, and highly paid monitors. Much of the book details failures in prosecutions, such as not prosecuting corporate officers and failing to consider victims interests. The best part of the work is the author s charts; these show that environmental crimes have been prosecuted vigorously, but food and drug violations much less so A well-written, detailed expose.--Harry Charles"Library Journal" (11/15/2014)"

Críticas:

Garrett presents for a lay readership a detailed and comprehensive examination of deferred corporate prosecutions, and corporate criminal prosecutions generally, and concludes that they have been, on the whole, ineffective Garrett on the basis of his own painstaking gathering of evidence (for neither the Department of Justice nor any other governmental entity keeps detailed and complete records of how such agreements are implemented over time) finds that many, perhaps most such agreements, while often obscuring who was personally responsible for the company s misconduct, fail to achieve meaningful structural or ethical reform within the company itself The breadth of Garrett s investigation, the wealth of detail he uses to support his conclusions, and the clarity of his prose make this an important book for laymen and experts alike.--Jed S. Rakoff"New York Review of Books" (02/19/2015)"

Descripción HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. American courts routinely hand down harsh sentences to individual convicts, but a very different standard of justice applies to corporations. Too Big to Jail takes readers into a complex, compromised world of backroom deals, for an unprecedented look at what happens when criminal charges are brought against a major company in the United States. Federal prosecutors benefit from expansive statutes that allow an entire firm to be held liable for a crime by a single employee. But when prosecutors target the Goliaths of the corporate world, they find themselves at a huge disadvantage. The government that bailed out corporations considered too economically important to fail also negotiates settlements permitting giant firms to avoid the consequences of criminal convictions. Presenting detailed data from more than a decade of federal cases, Brandon Garrett reveals a pattern of negotiation and settlement in which prosecutors demand admissions of wrongdoing, impose penalties, and require structural reforms. However, those reforms are usually vaguely defined. Many companies pay no criminal fine, and even the biggest blockbuster payments are often greatly reduced. While companies must cooperate in the investigations, high-level employees tend to get off scot-free. The practical reality is that when prosecutors face Hydra-headed corporate defendants prepared to spend hundreds of millions on lawyers, such agreements may be the only way to get any result at all. Too Big to Jail describes concrete ways to improve corporate law enforcement by insisting on more stringent prosecution agreements, ongoing judicial review, and greater transparency.
