The Economics of Crime and Incarceration

Panelists include Eric Sterling '73, Executive Director of the Criminal Justice Policy Foundation and Mark Kleiman '72, Director of the Crime and Justice Program at New York University’s Marron Institute of Urban Management of NYU. Brianna Groh '15 of Aberdeen Asset Management will moderate.

These two experts on crime in the US will discuss the repercussions of our current criminal justice system which criminalizes the use, possession, manufacture and distribution of recreational and addictive drugs and which has resulted in homicide and incarceration rates often many times higher than those same rates in other developed countries. They will then speculate on ways to change the system so we can reduce the prisoner headcount while also protecting public safety and preserving neighborhood vitality.

A wine/cheese reception immediately follows the talk, KINSC Rotunda.

This event it co-sponsored by the CPGC and Economics Department
