Abstract

This article focuses on the economic aspects of crime in the United States, specifically analyzing crimes which are committed by persons upon other persons and against property. The author notes that NAFTA may result in an increased influx of crime due to increased activity between the United States, Canada and Mexico. The article proceeds to analyze the economic aspects of criminal behavior by examining the probability of success via "Risk-Factors." The article examines the enormous cost of crime in the United States, and concludes that the monetary awards of crime will continue to result in an increase in criminal activity, particularly in light of NAFTA.
