2. Capitalism and Crime
About this Lecture
In this lecture, we explore the links between capitalism and crime, focusing in particular on: (i) the rise of supranational corporations which operate globally and which may have assets and profits larger than the GDP of whole countries; (ii) the definition of capitalism, and its relation to neoliberalism; (iii) Marxist theories on capitalism, including the idea that capitalism is intrinsically exploitative and criminogenic; (iv) the work of Richard Quinney and the concepts of 'crimes of domination' and 'crimes of accommodation'; and (v) some criticisms of Quinney's schema.
In this course, Professor Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria University) explores transnational and environmental crime. In the first lecture, we think about globalisation and the emergence of global crime. In the second lecture, we explore the links between capitalism and crime. In the third lecture, we turn to the development of transnational policing. Next, we look at transitional policing today. In the fifth lecture, we begin to explore the concept of green criminology. In the sixth and final lecture, we look at some concrete examples of green crimes.
Dr Tanya Wyatt is a Professor of Criminology specialising in green criminology. Her expertise centres on wildlife crime and trafficking, non-human animal abuse and welfare and the intersections of organised crime, corporate crime, and corruption. Other research interests are crimes of the powerful, particularly industrial agriculture and pollution.
