If so, how would you argue one side of a debate on...anything relating to the above two things? Looking for a paper topic.

Here is an article that talks about RICO issues and concerns.
http://www.independent.org/publications ... .asp?a=215

One argument is that the Fed is making criminal what should remain civil. (copyright stuff can put you in prison for RICO)
I see that in this article and recall it from a class on white collar crime.

RICO is good, but stretches the power of the FED which, well, history says is ....suspect.

hope that helps.
I enjoyed my white collar crime class, PM if you want more.
