Markets, privatisation and law and order – some economic considerations

Kevin Albertson discusses the difficulty of aligning private incentives with the public good.

I do not seek either to critique or support the principles of neo-liberalism; rather, we consider, if we chose to accept the neo-liberal discourse, how might the provision of criminal justice be carried out most effectively and in line with social wellbeing.
