Description
Prison building creates profits and gets "law and order" candidates elected, often with political contributions that came from those profits. But, Professor Davey argues, crime rates rise and fall approximately the same way in all fifty states regardless of whether they invest in expensive imprisonment programs. A cost-benefit analysis of recent investments in prisons concludes that the real winners are not the taxpayers.
