Abstract

Insider trading is one of the most representative commercial deception. Although insider trading is unethical and illegal, it still happens frequently in the U.S., even around the world. There are many studies focusing on the relationship between insider trading and moral problems, but there is lack of evaluation and analysis about the psychological and sociological reasons that cause the insider trading. This research devoted to evaluating the relationship between psychological factors and insider trading by analyzing the real cases, including Samuel Waksal Case, Yoshiaki Murakami Case, and Richard Burr Case. The propose for this study is to find the reason why people like to do insider trading under some psychological and sociological theories. The author focuses on using operant conditioning theory, conformity theory and some ethical theories to discuss the influencing factors of insider trading.
