Before I go read it, I'm putting down what I think has caused a drop in crime rates: Mostly the aging of the population. When people get older, they are less likely to commit crimes.

Legalize drugs: the main source of income for criminal organizations and gangs is gone, lower the incarceration rate, increased personal liberty. Problems solved.

I also read that corporations with interest in prison populations staying high spend millions of dollars on fighting for increasingly strict drug laws. It seems obvious they know where their income comes from...

Prohibition failed - it seems obvious what we should do.

Blogtruth, Both important points.

Intriguing article. I ordered Stuntz's book.

Donna,

That was the first I'd heard about Stuntz. His work sounds fascinating.
