Speaker(s): Stephen Machin

Recorded on 25 July 2017 at Old Theatre, Old Building

The lecture will present evidence on the determinants of criminality, with a focus on how economic incentives matter for crime. A particular emphasis will be placed on new empirical developments in the economics of crime field, and the use of large scale microdata in research designs that enable causal effects to be identified. Some of the areas to be covered include: crime and the labour market; the economic returns to crime; online crime; and the impact of policing on crime.
