Abstract

We provide an interpretation based on consistent beliefs for the widely accepted observation that a criminal conviction generates more stigma than an administrative penalty. We also show that maximal fines are not coherent with this interpretation.

Keywords: Consistent beliefs, stigma, administrative law, criminal law

JEL Classification: K1, K4
