After reading these arguments
Which social force do you believe plays a larger role in determining correctional policy?
After reading this chapter and listening to the lecture, you have been exposed to arguments that economic forces are the main driver of correctional policy. But others argue that political forces are the main driver. Still others argue that religion is the main force and then there are those that argue that it is technology. After reading these arguments in the context of American prison history, which force do you believe is the main driver of correctional policy? Please give specific examples to justify your position. Also, I want you to respond to two other discussion posts on this issue.
