Do you think those responsible for misreporting their companies’ earnings like in the WorldCom scandal should serve jailtime?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 9, 2002
“I would probably say yes, just because of the amount of people they affect. I think it should be a severe punishment, and it could possibly be time in prison.”
“Oh, yeah. That’s lying.”
“I’d say yeah, probably so. White collar crimes are on the rise, and it has typically gone unpunished.”
“If they knowingly broke laws, then they should go to prison.”
