The Electric Commentary

Friday, June 17, 2005

These are a few of my favorite things.

Yesterday the NYT had an article by Virginia Postrel on a crime study conducted by Jonathan M. Klick and Alex Tabarrok:

As a back-of-the-envelope calculation, Professor Klick offered an even more striking suggestion. "It wouldn't be unreasonable," he said, "based on our estimates and based on conservative estimates of the costs of crime, to say it would be cost-effective to actually double the number of people working in police forces, which is pretty amazing."

Update: While I was writing this I noticed this interesting post at Marginal Revolution.
