dc.description.abstractWe use a stylized model to show that, if transfers to the poor are founded on a security argument, there is a negative trade-o¤ between law enforcement expenditures and criminality. In contrast, if transfers are based on altruism, the correlation between the same variables may appear positive. We argue that it provides a plausible explanation for the startling di¤erence between the US and Europe in crime statistics and law enforcement expenditures.en_US
