Crime, wealth and inequality: Evidence from international crime victim surveys

Yuri Andrienko

EERC Working Paper Series from EERC Research Network, Russia and CIS

Abstract: Is development criminogenic? Presented model of criminal behavior in the economy with heterogeneous agents shows, that economic development (wealth increase) is accompanied with crime growth, whereas reduction in inequity (inequality in distribution of wealth) and higher human development (rise of honesty, measured by the level of education) lead to lower crime rate. These hypotheses will be tested on data from international crime victim surveys.
