Gary E. Marché told CA: "My area focus is illegal behavior and law enforcement. I look for interdisciplinary disagreement and explanations for such. I highlight the limited focus of economics on deterrence to include rational criminal choice in the context of criminal opportunities created by investigative inefficiencies that may be due to noneconomic training and theory. I propose solutions to problems based on economic analysis of noneconomic or criminal justice systems data.

"The main influence on my work is that I have actually observed an investigation of a planned homicide involving organized crime, professional offenders, and corrupt public officials. The case is still unsolved. Observation of investigative inefficiencies that provided criminal opportunities also provided an opportunity to learn more about this topic."

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
