Gary M. Shiffman, PhD, CEO of Giant Oak and Consilient, joined Russ Roberts of the EconTalk podcast to discuss how traditional identity labels inhibit our ability to understand and counteract violence. In his book, "The Economics of Violence: How Behavioral Science Can Transform our View of Crime, Insurgency, and Terrorism," Dr. Shiffman outlines how economic principles and  social anthropology offer a more complete understanding of crime and the motivations of illicit actors. Listen to the recording below to learn more about this topic and the contents of Dr. Shiffman's latest book.
