Embezzle This Show

Mar 5, 2014

Vermont is near the top of the list of states with the highest risk of loss from embezzlement. Why is this such an easy place to commit white collar crime?

We’ll look at different embezzlement schemes, how they affect the businesses and municipalities that were stolen from, and what can be done to prevent this theft. We’ll talk to Barbara Arel, professor of Accounting at the University of Vermont, and Assistant Attorney General John Treadwell.

Also on the show, we’ll get an update on the big stories from Town Meeting Day around the state with VPR News Director John Dillon.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, March 5th at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
