Public Economy Crime Prevention Platform  Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

What is profitable, of course, is often fashionable. To create a disincentive to participate in criminal activity, expanded opportunities are necessary for the poorest members of society. In keeping with the Republican Party's stress upon free enterprise, giving tax breaks to large corporations that move into disadvantaged communities, and hire and promote members of the community is one way to use commerce to aid the poor. If businesses also include community beautification and betterment projects within their outreach programs, they can receive further tax incentives.

Step 4: Enhance accessibility to education

The average college tuition in 1999 was 8,086 U.S. dollars, accounting for 62% of the income of low-income families" (Randall 2000). This percentage has only increased. Tax incentives for low-income students who come from disadvantaged areas, regardless of their race will enhance social mobility and infuse dollars, through these individual's eventual earnings, into new segments of the economy. Also, if more individuals within the community stay in school, and use education to further their life goals, achievement within societal institutions will seem possible, and a life of crime will seem less attractive. Ensuring that students meet academic benchmarks in the lower grades must be a continuing part of the Republican Party as well, exemplified in the recent No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation.
