My work on crime control draws on two social scientific traditions. One is behavioral economics: how do you do appropriate nudge strategies that push people in the direction you want to push them, adjusting for the fact that they're not perfectly rational? And the other is game theory. Even if people were perfectly rational, in a situation where there are many people breaking the law, then the risk faced by each one of them of being punished depends on how many other people are breaking the same law, how much enforcement we have. And that's what leads me to say: concentrate.
