Lesson 3 » Things that Money Can’t Buy
1. Read the brochure promoting experiences and complete the sentences.
BUYING EXPERIENCES vs. BUYING THINGS
Do you ever think, ‘If I save my money I will be able to buy a new iPhone’, or ‘If I buy a new
car I will be so happy’? Sure, having a new car, fashionable clothes or the latest technology
all sounds great, but can these material items really bring you the happiness you deserve?
From a young age, we learn to like having new things. If our friend has a new games console,
we want a new games console. If our neighbour has a swimming pool in their house, we want a
swimming pool too. The idea that buying and consuming makes us happy is an illusion. Recent
research has shown if people spend their money on experiences, they will be happier and
more satisfied with their lives. Experiences might be travelling to new places, eating at a new
restaurant, trying a new sport or simply going for a walk in the mountains or along the beach.
Still sceptical? Below are 5 reasons why people who
spend their money on experiences are happier than
those who waste their money on material items.
1. Experiences give you unforgettable memories
2. Experiences teach you things.
3. Experiences offer exciting challenges.
4. Experiences open your mind.
5. Experiences are great value for money.
So, isn’t it time to stop buying things and start
2. Read the sentences about spending and experiences. Write if you agree or disagree and explain why.
1. Holidays are very expensive. I prefer to buy lots of smaller things for myself.
2. Why should I spend money on a windsurfing course? I don’t live near the sea.
3. I love going to new restaurants. It’s exciting to try a new dish for the first time.
3. Write about the best experience you have had.

CONTROL, PUNISHMENT AND VICTIMS
Most of this chapter has focused on criminals and
criminalisation. By contrast, in this Topic, we turn our
attention first to what can be done to prevent crime, ranging
from changing the immediate situation where crime occurs,
to community programmes designed to tackle the root
causes of offending, as well as various forms of surveillance.
One view popular with politicians is that tougher
punishments are the best way to prevent crime. In this
Topic, we look at the nature and functions of punishment
from a number of perspectives, and we consider reasons for
the rapid growth in the prison population.
In previous Topics, we have seen how certain groups are
likely to be victims of crime. We conclude this Topic with
a closer look at victims and ‘victimology’, including which
groups are at greatest risk of victimisation.
Crime prevention and control
What makes people conform? And when they are tempted
not to do so, what can be done to prevent them deviating?
These questions raise the issue of social control – the
capacity of societies to regulate their members’ behaviour
– and crime prevention. This section examines different
approaches to these questions.
Situational crime prevention
Ron Clarke (1992) describes situational crime prevention
as ‘a pre-emptive approach that relies, not on improving
society or its institutions, but simply on reducing
opportunities for crime’. He identifies three features of
measures aimed at situational crime prevention:
l They are directed at specific crimes.
l They involve managing or altering the immediate
environment of the crime.
l They aim at increasing the effort and risks of committing
crime and reducing the rewards.
For example, ‘target hardening’ measures such as locking
doors and windows increase the effort a burglar needs to
make, while increased surveillance in shops via CCTV or
security guards increase the likelihood of shoplifters being
caught. Similarly, replacing coin-operated gas meters with
pre-payment cards reduces the burglar’s rewards.
Underlying situational crime prevention approaches is an
‘opportunity’ or rational choice theory of crime. This is the
view that criminals act rationally, weighing up the costs and
benefits of a crime opportunity before deciding whether to
commit it. (For more on rational choice theory, see Topic 4.)
This contrasts with theories of crime that stress ‘root
causes’ such as the criminal’s early socialisation or capitalist
exploitation. In the view of these theories, to deal with
crime, we would have to transform the socialisation of large
numbers of children or carry out a revolution. Clarke argues
that most theories offer no realistic solutions to crime. The
most obvious thing to do, he argues, is to focus on the
immediate crime situation, since this is where scope for
prevention is greatest. Most crime is opportunistic, so we
need to reduce the opportunities.
Marcus Felson (2002) gives an example of a situational
crime prevention strategy. The Port Authority Bus Terminal
in New York City was poorly designed and provided
opportunities for deviant conduct. For example, the toilets
were a setting for luggage thefts, rough sleeping, drug
dealing and homosexual liaisons. Re-shaping the physical
environment to ‘design crime out’ greatly reduced such
activity. For example, large sinks, in which homeless people
were bathing, were replaced by small hand basins.
What prevention measures (i) do you take personally to avoid
being a victim of crime in different situations; (ii) are taken in
the family home; (iii) have you seen elsewhere (e.g. school/
college, shops, transport) in the last few days?
One criticism of situational crime prevention measures is
that they do not reduce crime; they simply displace it. After
all, if criminals are acting rationally, presumably they will
respond to target hardening simply by moving to where
targets are softer. For example, Chaiken et al (1974) found
that a crackdown on subway robberies in New York merely
displaced them to the streets above.
Displacement can take several forms:
l Spatial – moving elsewhere to commit the crime.
l Temporal – committing it at a different time.
l Target – choosing a different victim.
l Tactical – using a different method.
l Functional – committing a different type of crime.
Perhaps the most striking example of the success of
situational measures is not about crime, but about suicide.
In the early 1960s, half of all suicides in Britain were the
