The aim of this course is to connect students with the salient contributions made by modern economists into understanding crime and its consequences and system responses to crime by criminal justice agencies. Three important areas are reviewed; (1) economic theory employed by economists in researching economic crime, (2) specialised techniques used by economists, and (3) areas of substantive expertise where economists contribute to scholarship and policy development.
The course begins by introducing the fundamentals of the economics of crime and enforcement. The market for crimes is then introduced alongside other economic theories and methods used to research crime. The theories and methods provide the necessary framework for investigating topics such as the economics of juvenile crime, the economics of neighbourhood gangs, guns and crime, and drugs and crime.
