HUMONETARIANISM: THE NEW CORRECTIONAL DISCOURSE
OF SCARCITY
By  H adar  Aviram  ............................................................ 1
Criminological accounts of penological discourse in the
United States often focus on the transition to more
punitive policies beginning in the late 1970s, which led
the U.S. to top international charts of incarceration rates
per capita. However, recent developments in punitive
policies and practices suggest a reversal of the punitive
pendulum.   This article maps these developments,
arguing that they represent the emergence of a new
correctional discourse, called humonetarianism, which
focuses on scarcity of resources and on cost-benefit
analysis as its main raison d'9tre.
This  article  begins by  tracing  the  history  of
humonetarianism,   offering  two    complementary
genealogies for this discourse. It then moves on to
demonstrate how the discourse of scarcity operates in a
variety of contexts related to the correctional apparatus.
From these multiple discursive sites, this article
generates the main features of humonetarianism: an
emphasis on emergency, short-term discourse; political
bipartisanism; and cost-drive rhetoric.  This article
concludes by offering an analysis of the potential of
humonetarianism to become a catalyst for a reversal of
punitive tendencies. However, it also illuminates the
peril of opting for short-term correctional solutions,
anticipating a punitive backlash once the situation
improves.
