To do so, I would suggest listing as many types of crime as rationally possible and then tracking the effect of inequality (as seen by the criminal in his/her situation) on each scenario. I haven't done this formally, but ever since I learned of this hypothesis, I have tried to tie the crimes I hear about to it and had much success.

IOW, I can't think of a crime that can't be tied back to the social oppression that is caused by the current inequality. That's not to say they don't exist but rather than it is a highly common occurrence.
