The Market Model of Crime: A Short Review and New Directions
Isaac Ehrlich ()
Chapter 1 in Handbook on the Economics of Crime, 2010 from Edward Elgar Publishing
While few economists analyzed criminal behaviour and the criminal justice process before Gary Becker’s seminal 1968 paper, an enormous body of economic research on crime has since been produced. This insightful and comprehensive Handbook reviews and extends much of this important resulting research.
