Abstract and Keywords
A growing body of research seems to contradict prior assumptions that individual characteristics are unimportant to the etiology of white-collar offending. This article highlights the theoretical thinking and the empirical research that underscores the need to attend to white-collar offenders’ personality traits, neutralizations, and criminal thinking styles. More research is needed to better understand what individual psychological factors contribute to the risk for becoming a white-collar offender and to inform intervention efforts and policy options for white-collar and corporate crime.
