This course provides an overview of how economists define and measure crime. Students learn to use the economist’s tools to examine: the costs of crime and crime prevention to society and the individuals in it; the behavior of criminals and potential criminals; the markets for criminal behavior and the goods and services that are produced in them; organized crime versus disorganized crime; and the public policies aimed at dealing with crime. Theoretical explanations for crime, victimization, patterns of criminal behavior and the dynamics of differential involvement of specific groups in the criminal justice system are explored.
