Economies Vs Prision
GDP was overlaid with incarceration rates in the United States. This would offer an overview of the economy and an insight into whether the economy is growing, at what rate and how closely crime follows economic growth. Here, we deal with national numbers, and GDP does not take inflation into account and incarceration rate is not per capita (a population increase can discredit this figure). Likewise, the significance in these numbers lies in their rates of change. A GDP that grows more quickly than a total incarceration rate suggests a society that is improving. However, an incarceration rate that increases more quickly than GDP suggests degradation, even if the society is still experiencing economic growth.
