While I wouldn't go as far as capital punishment for white collar crimes, what I would condone would be corporal punishment, like Indonesian caning.
Have a "caning session" for all the white collar criminals on like the 1st of the month, with each receiving say 5 or 6 strikes per month x a pre
determined number of months/years. Make all of the offenders watch as others get caned while they wait for their turn in line. Make them think long
and hard about their crime, and make them dread the first of the month for their next round of punishment. During the remainder of the month require
them to do public community service and repay the community for their transgressions. Required them to wear a striped prison outfit 24/7, and a sign
publicly stating that they are a convicted criminal who was sentenced to x number of caning sessions for whatever crime they committed. An
"invisible fence" type collar would be fitted to prevent them from running and force them to show up for their punishment. Make criminal penalties
so dreaded that others would never dare think about doing the same.
I honestly think that such a system would work, would ease the cost of rehabilitating criminals, would force them to support themselves rather than
have taxpayers support them, and would shame criminals while reducing the crime rate. (Or maybe I'm just showing my more sadistic side)
