''Knowledge society and crime: an ambiguous relation''
( 2013, Vol. 33 No.3 )
This article aims at studying the impact of return on education on criminal behaviour. A dynamic model of time allocation between investment in human capital, labour and criminal activity is developed, assuming that these activities are substitutable and endogenous. Our attention focuses on the transmission channels of legal opportunities and highlights the conditions under which the involvement of a country in a “knowledge society” produces a decrease in crime level.
Keywords: Crime, Time allocation, Human Capital
JEL: K4 - Legal Procedure, the Legal System, and Illegal Behavior: General
