Abstract: This chapter examines what is known about corporate crime deterrence in hopes of identifying legal strategies that can prevent such crimes and their often-immense harms against consumers, competitors, employees, creditors, and owners. In this chapter, we rely heavily on results from a meta-analytic study of corporate crime deterrence research but also examine the extant literature in an effort to summarize what formal mechanisms might be effective in promoting compliance. Despite increasing awareness of the frequency and consequences of these violations, research has produced almost no conclusive recommendations. We find that simply making new corporate crime laws is ineffective, while actual criminal justice sanctions (e.g., arrest, incarceration) seem to be inconsistently effective. There is some support for the use of fines and monetary sanctions (both civil and criminal) in producing compliance, but financial penalties seem to be effective only in the short term and only when they are very high. Furthermore, in our review, regulatory sanctions seem to be effective against individual-level offending, but these sanctions have wildly inconsistent impacts when leveled against corporations. We discuss the dire need for more research, offering specific suggestions for scholarship.
