Re: Wouldn't it be cheaper...

But since you can't have that kind of guarantee

Well done. You completely missed the point.

What I'm saying is that it is the probability of detection that deters, not the size of the penalty. I'm well aware that you can't make that guarantee in real life, it was merely a way of showing that a small penalty is perfectly effective if that probability is high enough.
