Identifying fraud, waste, and abuse in the supply chain

Identifying fraud, waste, and abuse in the supply chain | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
Everyday supply-chain transactions pose some of the biggest fraud, waste, and abuse risks companies face. But few companies are equipped to monitor the risks or detect breaches with the help of analytics, according to a global survey  conducted by Deloitte.

Of the 3,600 executives and managers polled, 47% did not know whether their company had experienced fraud, waste, or abuse in its supply chain during the past 12 months. Meanwhile, 50% said they did not know how often their company monitored its third-party suppliers, shippers, and vendors.

About 40% said their companies have detection and prevention programmes in place.

The portion of respondents who didn’t know about supply-chain fraud, waste, and abuse incidents surprised Mark Pearson, a principal with Deloitte Financial Advisory Services and fraud investigator. Survey participants were in positions where they should have known, he said. He also said it is likely that some of the respondents who answered “don’t know” experienced fraud, waste, or abuse in the supply chain in the past 12 months.

Further, he said, programmes that were in place to detect breaches could be improved. “A robust programme is going to be a balance of solid control framework and a continuous or somewhat periodic monitoring programme,” he added.

An Economic and Moral Case for Legalizing Cocaine and Heroin

An Economic and Moral Case for Legalizing Cocaine and Heroin | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
Criminalization comes at a large cost--elevated prices, impurities, and the vagaries of black markets--and does marginal good for the few very abusive users.

Legalization of hard drugs I don't know If I could stand behind. I see the pros and the cons. The legalization of these types of drugs still present a higher case of the cons as compared to the legalization of less heavy drugs like Marijuana. The pros is to say that it eliminates the black market for this. However since these drugs have such an adverse affect on the human body how many people would overdose so easily because it has become readily available and most drug addicts will still lie to get a larger amount they can consume in a shorter time. You could purchase a pound of Marijuana and the amount you need to OD would take some time. However these drugs all you need is a couple people to sell to you on one day. Then again prescription drugs can be just as dangerous, and we already have a large addiction problem there with pharmaceutical companies making the profit legally. If only you could make it legal and people wouldn't die or get hurt. I guess until that could be the case I cant get behind these drugs, what we should look at is how long a person should be incarcerated for these drugs. That is something that needs to change. Put the money into rehabilitation.

Elizabeth Sheppard's comment, October 19, 4:48 AM
This shows the difference between cultures. There is a strong social control in Korea as well. The individual Im sure could not live with the consequences and was looked as a great dishonor for what had happened to those people. His quality of life would probably have been pretty horrible and he would not be able to overcome this by moving. Korea just recently had that ferry disaster that left 300 dead. The owner of that sunken ferry boat was later found dead. The family had fled after the incident, In the US I think the owners would just go to court and try to pay their way out of it and hope that people forgot and then they just move to another state to let it blow over.

This guy deserved what he got, I have read a few articles on this case. The kid did not deserve what happened to him. Yes kids can be disrespectful and play loud music. This guy killed him and had no remorse. It was not a self defense. The guy left the scene when on his way like nothing happened then called the cops the next day. If it was self defense his reaction would be different. He also seem like an arrogant bigot who thought he could get away with it. I don't know if I was the mother of the victim that I could forgive him. Im glad he didn't get away with it.
