What is White Collar Crime

In this exersice you are to write a short paper (1-2 pages) analysing the term white collar crime. No cover sheet or APA required. I am looking for thorough analysis of how the meaning of this phrase has developed and changed through the years since it was first introduced by Sutherland in 1939. Does it make sense to you? Does it fit in the contemporray society? Are there other better ways for defining crimes that are often labelled “white collar”? How much of a factor is the media in all this?
