We return to this point in Chapters 7 and 8, as well as the appendix to this chapter. It does seem rather unlikely that the actual level of offences does not depend on the perceived severity of punishment. Indeed, at certain levels punishments are effectively seen as a cost of doing business (for example, illegal loads and road haulage, or libellous articles in newspapers), and so are normally taken into account in business calculations. We shall therefore include in our model a measure of the severity of punishment.

Chambliss (1966) himself concluded that " a n increase in the severity and certainty of punishment does act as a deterrent to further violation" (p. 70). But Zimring and Hawkins (1968) argue that his data better support the inference that " t h e change in behaviour of the frequent offender group [is] attributable to the removal of what we have called 'information and attention deficiencies' and to increases in credibility of the threat rather than to the upward shift in the punishment level". Whether they or Chambliss are correct, both can be fitted within the framework of the economic a p p r o a c h .
