Annotation: Economic analysis is increasingly recognized as an essential component of the study of the decisionmaking behavior of individuals and organizations as law breakers, law abiders, law enforcers, or as victims of crime.
Abstract: The analysis of crime has become part of the mainstream of contemporary economics, including the central theoretical and policy controversies of the discipline. Many fields of economics, especially public sector economics and business economics, can substantially enrich the criminal justice curriculum. As economic crime is acknowledged as the most pervasive aspect of crime in our society, and as public agencies and public policy are increasingly subjected to economic evaluation, expansion of the role of economic analysis in the criminal justice curriculum becomes an educational imperative. 7 notes and 31 references.
