Josh Barro has a piece on auto thefts in which he says the "most important factor" in explaining the decline is the introduction of technology in the late 90s/early 2000s that makes it "essentially impossible to start a car without the ignition key."
That's fine, but how does that comport with the second chart included in the piece, which shows the most dramatic declines taking place from around 1990-97 before such technology became available?
