Unlikely. Income inequality has reduced the number of white-collar criminals significantly since there are less and less people that actually have enough money to be wall street crooks. It’s also a problem since those people also tend to be the very same that are investing in private businesses, and so by incarcerating them, you are potentially killing jobs as well. The other problem with your solution is that white-collar crime tends to eliminate opportunities for prosperity for millions, which of course has a much more profound increase on crime rather than just throwing a few thousand white guys into minimum security prisons.
