Abstract:

Since Sutherland coined the term “white-collar crime,” there have been many criminological theories developed to explain corporate crime, which has been generally considered a subtype of white-collar crime, such as anomie theory, social learning theory, organization theory, control theory, and rational choice theory. Among these theories, social learning theory and rational choice theory have been recognized as the most applicable theoretical frameworks given their special concerns on risk-reward analysis and the decision making process, its associations with economic and sociological perspectives, and the nature of the corporation as a social entity. Accordingly, this paper aims to analyze the strengths of these two theories in explaining corporate crime.
The first section describes the characteristics of corporate crimes. The second section reviews the elements of rational choice theory and social learning theory. In the third section, the paper reviews the literatures of rational choice theory and social learning theory in the context of corporate crime. In the fourth section, the paper compares the strengths of these two theories. The fifth section concludes the application of social learning theory and rational choice theory in corporate crime and suggests an integrated approach to analyze corporate crime.
