The primary objective for theories of white collar crimes is to explain exactly what constitutes a "white collar crime". The theories don't necessarily attempt to explain the causes of the crime, but rather the motivation or reasoning behind committing these crimes. White collar crimes can include a multitude of actions or inactions so I agree that "no single theory fits all white collar crimes" (Friedrichs, p. 220)
