Abstract

This essay comments on Professor Manuel Utset's latest work in the area of corporate criminal conduct and time-consistent preferences. The essay praises Professor Utset for developing a strong theoretical basis for justifying the external regulation of corporate actors, but also addresses another implication of his theory -- that it has salience in warranting greater internal regulation as well.
