Economic crime is a significant feature of the UK's economic landscape and yet despite the Coalition government's bold mission statements 'to hold those suspected of financial wrongdoing to account' as part of their 'day of reckoning' and 'serious about white collar crime' agenda, there is a sense that this is still not being done effectively. This book examines the history of the creation of the UK's anti-economic crime institutions and accompanying legislation, providing a critique of their effectiveness.

The book analyses whether the recent regulatory regime established by the Coalition government is fit for purpose as well as being appropriate for the future. In order to explore how the UK's economic crime strategies could be improved the book takes a comparative approach analysing policy and legislative responses to economic crime in the US, Australia and the European Union in order to determine whether the UK could or should import similar structures or laws to improve the enforcement of UK economic crime.
