The notion of "white-collar crime" was originated by the Progressivist E. A. Ross, developed by the Dutch Marxist Willem Adrian Bonger, and conceptualized by the sociologist Edwin H. Sutherland. All were passionate anti-capitalists. A consideration of their work shows that they sought to damn the capitalist conception of a business relationship by contrasting it with various pre-capitalist conceptions of a business relationship that fundamentally denied self-seeking. As now used, the concept of "white-collar crime" perpetuates its founders' denial of the capitalist truth that self-seeking is a legitimate motive in business relationships.
