Dealing with Terrorism – Stick or Carrot?

Dealing with Terrorism – Stick or Carrot? Rev Austrian Econ (2006) 19:337–340 DOI 10.1007/s11138-006-9252-0 BOOK RE VIE W Frey, Bruno S., 2004, Dealing with Terrorism – Stick or Carrot?, Cheltenham, UK, Edward Elgar, xv+182, Hardcover, ISBN 1843768283 Giampaolo Garzarelli Springer Science + Business Media, LLC The work of Bruno Frey is always one step ahead of that of most others when it comes to the economic exploration of topical events and to introducing against-the- grain perspectives in the mainstream economics discourse. This short little book on terrorism is no exception. The intent of Frey is to offer an economic (i.e., cost-benefit) analysis of terrorism and policies addressing it not just for the professional economist but for all those who have an interest on the topic. To this end, Frey not only limits technicalities as much as possible, but also avoids the use of footnotes, in favor of end-of-chapter bibliographical guides for those readers interested in extending their knowledge of the material covered. The substantive novelty of Dealing with Terrorism does not hinge on analyzing terrorism with the economist’s toolbox, however. Such type of analysis, though gaining an ever-increasing following after 9/11, has actually been around, especially thanks to the work of William Landes and, later, Todd The Review of Austrian Economics Springer Journals
