Economic Causes of Criminology (Short Note)

In poverty economic causes play a very significant role. Unequal distribution of wealth is one major reason. Similarly monopoly of means of production and distribution in the hands of few is another reason. It is due to this that the few get an opportunity to exploit man. It is also due to this that rich become richer and poor still poorer. In a country with agricultural economy, uneven distribution of land and quick division and sub-division of cultivable land increases poverty. In the economic field we find that depression in trade and commerce and also labour unrest resulting in lockouts and strikes are some of the other causes for poverty. In a country, which has been in a position to end unproductive hoarding, the nation is bound to be poor and living standard of the people is sure to come down. As already said, unemployment is a major contributing factor in so far as poverty is concerned. Unemployment and poverty are to a large extent directly related to each other.
