The Investment Problem in Terrorism
Evidence from early terrorist groups reveals a structural equivalence between extortion and terrorism. This allows us to draw conclusions from the theory of extortion that can be applied to a theory of terrorism concerning the role of repeated play in the viability of extortion. It also enables us to analyse the role of commitment in destroying the extortionary organization. Copyright (c) The London School of Economics and Political Science 2004.
