    Other than the whole economic crash with no one going to jail... just nominal fines?

    Most rules tend to have an exception. The only way a white collar generally goes to jail for stealing from blue collar is if the face of the criminal gets too much publicity. Kind of hard when people do their criminal activity under the guise of "corprations are people too" therefore no human face is actually responsible for the criminal deeds. Just a company logo that gets a fine.
