Homework Help: criminology

Posted by jeff on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 8:14am.

Can someone explain rational choice theory to me. How is criminal behavior explained according to the rational choice theory?

It is explained here well:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rational_choice_theory

Look at the (unrealistic) assumptions about the world in that document. The problem of explaining criminal behaviour is in those assumptions. Most criminals dont live those assumptions.
