Summary Just the Facts Ma'am is the only book written from an economics perspective that addresses one of the most remarkable cases of the reversal of corruption in the history of the United States - a case of corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department. Just the Facts Ma'am is an 'analytic narrative' - a case study guided by formal economic theory. It is the only book written from an economics perspective that addresses one of the most remarkable cases of the reversal of corruption in the history of the United States - a case of corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department. The model combines traditional aspects of the 'reform as changes in economic incentives' introduced by William Parker in the LAPD, combined with an analysis of his extensive consideration of social norms.
