behavior in differing and sometimes contradictory respects. In the short run corporations will not be able to rationally evaluate their exposure under the guidelines. They can neither price the cost of full compliance nor estimate the size of the fine until they observe how courts apply the guidelines in practice. This uncertainty is attributable to the guidelines' complex structure and to the lack of clarity in the provisions themselves. To the extent that these guidelines prove to be unworkable in practice the commission may be compelled to redefine or modify certain provisions. In the main, however, the guidelines are not likely to be changed much in the immediate future. We must, therefore, understand them as best we can to adjust our strategies and expectations in this new age of corporate sentencing.
