Wherever there is commerce, there is fraud. Even so, America seems to do fraud bigger, more boldly, and with more flash than other countries. In this one-day session, we will trace American fraud from the simple oversell of the 19th century through some of the more complex instances of contemporary fraud. We will look for commonalities between various types of fraud and discuss those psychological dispositions that contribute to the practice.
One session. E - $85, L - $93.5
