The Origin of White Collar Criminality?: Exploring a Gene x Environment Interaction Hypothesis
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.
2018 (English)In: International Journal of Criminology and Sociology, E-ISSN 1929-4409, E-ISSN EISSN 1929-4409, Vol. 7, p. 196-205Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The aim for this article is the elementary question: why does white collar criminals become white collar criminals? The answer is a hypothetical syllogistic constructed hypothesis for further empirical exploration in the agenda. The hypothesis takes its point of departure in biosocial criminology, especially the gene-environment interplay, focused on white collar criminality. The hypothesis proposes a link between criminal attitudes and criminal behavior based on how biological (e.g. intergenerational heredity, MAO-A), neurological (e.g. executive functioning, cortical thickness) and social-psychological/sociological factors (e.g. peer-group, rationalizations, social stress, loss of class status) correlates to each other as a system of mechanisms.
