PONTON, Daniel. The Contribution of Edwin Sutherland to the Analysis of Global Economic Crime. URVIO [online]. 2020, n.27, pp.112-124. ISSN 1390-4299.

The objective of this article is to analyze the contribution of the intellectual work of Edwin Sutherland for the understanding of the nature and treatment of global economic crime in the current context. Organized crime, corruption, tax evasion, corporate crimes and even economic informality are problematic but consubstantial phenomena to economic globalization. This allows to establish a link between criminology and international studies.The article makes an analytical and critical sweep of the "white collar crime theory" and relevant associations with two other theories of the same author: "differential association" and "the professional thief".With remarkable analytical acuity, Sutherland showsthe nature of the crime of the upper classes, their corporate logic and their strategies. Beyond the conceptual and contextual limits understandable for his time, his work is currentlyrelevant because it puts the contractions or conflicts inherent in the triumph of economic liberalism on the global stage at the center of the debate. This conflict must be analyzed in the high spectrum of the economic culture of contemporary society.

Palabras clave : economic system; entrepreneurship; globalization.
