Economics of Being a Sex Offender

Listen to this Freakonomics podcast on the economics of being a sex offender, Making Sex Offenders Pay – and Pay and Pay and Pay. The email that inspired this podcast:

So I just finished my M.A. in forensic psychology at John Jay and started an internship in a new city … I spend most of my days hanging out with lovely people like rapists and pedophiles. At my internship, I primarily do therapy (both group and individual) with convicted sex offenders and it made me realize being a sex offender is a terrible idea (apart from the obvious reasons). It’s economically disastrous! I think it would be interesting to cover the economics of being a sex offender.

This is a fresh look at what our experiences already tell us. Listen to the whole thing.
