Jeremy Bentham in his book The Rationale for Punishment already applied utilitarian logic to the sanctions applied to criminal offenders. In economics itself, research in earnest began with the seminal work by Becker in the s.

What we need is convictonomics: a coldly rational economics-based approach to crime and punishment. Assigning a price to an assault or a burglary might sound preposterous. The economics of deterrence.

Aaron Chalfin and Justin McCrary write that deterrence is important not only because it results in lower crime but also because, relative to incapacitation, it is ers who are deterred from committing crime in the first place do not have to be identified, captured, prosecuted, setenced, or incarcerated.

Without using graphs or mathematical equations, Winter combines theory and empirical evidence relating to public policy concerns over a wide range of controversial topics such as the death penalty, racial bias in the criminal Author: Harold Winter.

There are chapters on the following topics: benefit-cost and the imprisonment decision, enforcement games, juvenile crime, private enforcement, economics of 3 strikes law, broken windows strategies, police profiling, and crime in developing countries. There are also separate chapters on guns, drugs, and capital punishment/5(2).

The best books on Crime and Punishment recommended by David Downes. Emeritus professor at the LSE's Mannheim Centre for the Study of Criminology & Criminal Justice tells us about the consequences of mass incarceration and a breakdown in social and moral cohesion.

However, the book clearly illustrates how the concept of trade-off in economics is relevant to criminal behaviors and policies to address crimes.

E conomists approach the analysis of crime with one simple assumption—that criminals are rational. A mugger is a mugger for the same reason I am an economist—because it is the most attractive alternative available to him. The decision to commit a crime, like any other economic decision, can be analyzed as a choice among alternative combinations of costs and benefits.
