David Skarbek is an award-winning author and lecturer of Political Economy at King’s College London. His research has examined how people define and enforce property rights and trade in the absence of a strong, effective government.

His book 'The Social Order of the Underworld: How Prison Gangs Govern the American Penal System' examines how inmates create self-governance institutions to promote economic and social interactions behind bars.
