Prison reform consists of proposals to reduce the expense and injustices caused by what has been criticized as the "Prison-Industrial Complex" by former federal Bureau of Prisons employee Jack Donson.[1]

The United States imprisons far more people per capita, with far longer sentences, than any other country in the world, including communist nations. The direct costs are a staggering $8.7 billion annually merely for federal prisoners, plus a far higher cost for state and local prisoners and an indirect social cost of probably trillions.
