On the dynamics of corporate size and illegal activity: An empirical assessment [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 7 (11):861 - 870 (1988)
This research, relying on companies continuously listed on the Fortune 500 over a five-year period (n=384), provides an empirical assessment of two hypotheses. Based on 334 violations over the period the results indicate: (1) gross differences in illegal activity based on corporate size, and (2) similar differences in corporate recidivism also based on size. Discussion includes a number of size related dynamics which may account in part for such results.
