Osler on Crack

Osler,markMark William Osler (Univ. of St. Thomas (MN)) has posted Learning from Crack on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This relatively brief (6,900 word) essay tells a compelling story and makes a simple point: That the development and spread of crack cocaine in the United States was a product of economics rather than a grand conspiracy or government action. “Learning from Crack” takes a close look at where crack came from and where it went, while urging a business-model approach to addressing crime which is driven by economic forces.
