Description:

The paper looks at Levitt and Dubner and their explanation for the steady drop in the crime rate since the early 1990s. The paper goes through and discusses how Levitt and Dubner discredit each and every one of the fashionable conceits used to explain the crime drop in America since the 1980s; as isa shown, they undeniably present a compelling case for their position. In any event, the paper discusses how the authors declare that lower crime rates came about because of abortion - or, rather, because of a much lower birthrate that left in place an older population disinclined to carry out criminal behaviour. As time allows, this writer argues that Levitt and Dubner are actually correct in their assessment.
