The Death Penalty: No Evidence for Deterrence

John Donohue / Justin J Wolfers
Published Online: 2006-04-13 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1553-3832.1170

John Donohue and Justin Wolfers argue that Gary Becker and Richard Posner are wrong to think that the death penalty deters murder: they find little empirical support for the claim. If anything, when one looks over the longest period possible (1934-2000) there is more evidence that the death penalty stimulates murder than that it deters murder.
