Jenkins on overcriminalization

In today's Wall Street Journal (registration required), Holman Jenkins has an excellent column on the global tendency "to bring more charges of 'corporate manslaughter' against companies, as well as more attempts to make top executives themselves criminally liable." His interesting sidenote: the problem is more overseas: "so huge are the sums available through punitive damages in the U.S. civil legal system that few clamor for criminal prosecution as well."
