dc.description.abstractFrom December of 2007 until June of 2009, the United States suffered from the ‘Great Recession’. Due to the recent Great Recession, the motivation to commit white-collar crime has increased. This thesis analyzes national economic and crime data from 2005 to 2012 in an attempt to find a correlation between the Great Recession and a rise in white-collar crime. Also, this thesis delves into the role of females in white-collar crime. Data primarily from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice, and Bureau of Justice Statistics were used in this thesis covering the fluctuations of fraud, embezzlement, forgery, and counterfeiting.en_US
