At The Margin


#32: Pirates, Ransom & Kidnap - Prof. Anja Shortland (King's College London)

Season 2, Ep. 20

Today’s guest is Anja Shortland, Professor In political economy at King’s College London. Prof. Shortland does some really interesting work on the economics of crime and will speak to us today about the economic dynamics at play in hostage situations. Yes, that's correct – today’s episode is on the economics of kidnapping!

Prof. Shortland has a book entitled "Kidnap" that I would recommend if you would like to learn more about this topic.
