Description:
This course focuses on the economic study of crime. In particular, we will view criminals – different from the traditional approach of criminologists or sociologists – as utility-maximizing decision makers and study how incentives change criminal behavior. In particular we will focus on socio-economic determinants of crime and how crime can be deterred. More specifically, we will discuss how unemployment, poverty, and education lead to criminal behavior, and how police, incapacitation and death penalty reduce crime. We will also discuss the topics of guns and alcohol. Active seminar participation (20%) + seminar presentation (30%) + paper summary (50%)
