№ 71/2009 from Mar 30, 2009

Professor Dr. Bruno S. Frey, economist at the University of Zurich, will be holding three lectures at Freie Universität Berlin later this month. Each lecture will deal with a different theme.

Why did a disproportionate number of Brits lose their lives during the sinking of the Titanic? What are the possibilities for alternative forms of punishment in the fight against crime?
