Prior to February 2010, Illinois delivered food stamps on the first day of every month. Then the state decided to spread distribution more evenly throughout the month. As a result, stores weren't hit with massive crowds all at once and officials weren't burdened with a large workload. New research from Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management and Miami University featured in Business Insider suggests there could be another benefit of the change: a reduction in grocery store thefts.
As gun violence continues to escalate nationwide, research coauthored by Krannert economics professor Jillian Carr takes aim at widely enforced juvenile curfew laws intended to reduce crime that may actually increase it.
