This includes work on the pay of CEOs and evidence on the link between such pay and firm performance and the role of the financial sector in increasing income disparities. Second, he does work on the economics of crime looking at, inter alia, evidence on the links between immigration and crime and the impact of unemployment when leaving school on subsequent criminal behaviour.
