In the context of white collar crime, risk can refer to either meaning. Risk applies to white collar crime in the original sense insofar as a calculated gamble is taken; the chances of being caught and punished are quite remote compared with the benefits that accrue from committing the crime. Although such calculations can play a role in most forms of crime, it is especially likely to be a central feature of many white collar 11 crimes.
