Synopsis: After forty years of increasing prison construction and incarceration rates, winds of change are blowing through the American correctional system. The 2008 financial crisis demonstrated the unsustainability of the incarceration project, thereby empowering policy makers to reform punishment through fiscal prudence and austerity. In Cheap on Crime, Hadar Aviram draws on years of archival and journalistic research and builds on social history and economics literature to show the powerful impact of recession-era discourse on the death penalty, the war on drugs, incarceration practices, prison health care, and other aspects of the American correctional landscape.

From the Inside Flap: After decades of stability, mass incarceration is suddenly shapeshifting with enormous speed. Long-held debates are quickly becoming outdated. Aviram has provided us an incisive analysis of this transformation in progress and a lexicon for the new language of carceral power.” Jonathan Simon, Adrian A. Kragen Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley

Masterfully interrogates the economic logics that underpin our America’s massive penal crisis in the wake of the Great Recession. Aviram offers a wonderfully rich analysis of the emerging cheap on crime’ ethos.” Mona Lynch, Professor of Criminology, Law, and Society and Law, University of California, Irvine

A groundbreaking analysis of the new rationality of fiscal austerity that will probably dominate the penal field in the years to come.” Alessandro De Giorgi, Associate Professor of Justice Studies, San Jose State University, and author of Re-thinking the Political Economy of Punishment: Perspectives on Post-Fordism and Penal Politics

The 2007 financial crisis imposed new realities on American crime policy widespread realization that we cannot buy our way to safety though ever-tougher sentences. Aviram coins the term humonetarianism to capture the twin impulses that animate this development: humanitarian concerns with justice, coupled with hard-nosed neo-liberal concerns with money. This odd couple of concerns has made substantial inroads. Cost-based opposition to the death penalty is at an all-time high, and in some states the most draconian sentencing laws have been softened. This is a hard-headed analysis that explores these new trends and their consequences. It is must reading for anyone interested in the criminal law and crime policy that is, all informed citizens.” Malcolm Feeley, Claire Sanders Clements Dean’s Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley
