David Friedman: Should We Abolish Criminal Law? (42m)

This episode features a lecture by economics professor David Friedman from 2012. Friedman examines the differences between civil and criminal systems of law. He imagines what the U.S. legal system would look like if criminal law were dissolved — that is, if the legal system was composed entirely of individuals bringing claims against each other. Friedman anticipates the problems raised by such a system and attempts to come up with solutions to the contrary. Purchase books by David Friedman on Amazon here.
