Busy, busy, busy

Two new publications: one on crime and punishment, one on Mexican drug violence

The latest Washington Monthly has my essay (partly in response to Glenn Loury’s) about how to deal with crime in America, and especially in Black America.

Steve Davenport and I have a new paper up in the Journal of Drug Policy Analysis on violence-reducing drug enforcement strategies for Mexico.

Yes, I know I’ve been wasting far too much time on research and teaching, and sorely neglecting my blogging. Won’t happen again, sir.

One thought on “Busy, busy, busy”

  1. Odd that you completely ignore the legalization question in the Washington Monthly article. Seems strange given the societal discussion on it now.
