The results of this study demonstrate that there are no simple explanations for why a corporation may or may not comply with a particular regulation. Seemingly obvious motives for corporate lawbreaking, such as the desire for profits or disagreement with regulations, cannot be disentangled from the context in which these motives evolve. Regulatory compliance is the result of a complex of conditions that reinforce or counteract each other, conditions which ??? depending on the circumstances ??? create motives or opportunities for compliance or violation.
