  2. The Economics of Open Access

    The Economics of Open Access

    Thomas Eger, Marc Scheufen
    Addressing the recent debate on how the future of academic publishing might look in a purely digital environment, this book analyzes the experiences of researchers with, as well as attitudes towards, “Open Access” (OA) publishing. Drawing on a unique, in-depth survey with more than 10,000 respondents from 25 countries, Thomas Eger and Marc Scheufen discuss their findings in the light of recent policy attempts which have been trying to foster OA, revealing considerable shortcomings and lack of knowledge on fundamental features of the academic publishing market.

  3. History of Law and Economics

    History of Law and Economics

    Edited by Henry N. Butler, Jonathan Klick
    Dedicated to the late Henry G. Manne, this authoritative collection surveys the development of law and economics both as a scholarly field and as an educational program.

The influential articles presented in this volume trace that development from the mid-20th century through to today, focusing on both the personalities who laid the groundwork for the field’s success and the intellectual debates that fueled its growth. Together with an original introduction by the editors, this collection is a valuable research tool for academics and students interested in the history of law and economics. Learn More

  7. Law and Development

    Law and Development

    Frank H. Stephen
    This book draws on the analytical framework of New Institutional Economics (NIE) to critically examine the role which law and the legal system play in economic development. Analytical concepts from NIE are used to assess policies which have been supported by multilateral development organisations including securing private property rights, reform of the legal system and financial development. The importance of culture in shaping the legal environment, which in turn influences financial sector development, is also assessed using Oliver Williamson’s ‘levels of social analysis’ framework.

  8. Paying the Carbon Price

    Paying the Carbon Price

    Elena de Lemos Pinto Aydos

This innovative book provides a framework to assist policymakers in the design of transitional assistance measures that are both legally robust and will support the effectiveness of the ETSs whilst limiting negative impacts on international trade.

  12. Methodologies of Law and Economics

    Methodologies of Law and Economics

    Edited by Thomas S. Ulen
    When law and economics first became an important part of the legal academy, it was a relatively straightforward application of microeconomic theory to legal issues. However, in the past 35 years the field has expanded its toolkit dramatically. This latest volume in the acclaimed Encyclopedia of Law and Economics maps the methodological territory in Law and Economics, with a series of entries by distinguished scholars that introduce and evaluate that expansive toolkit, including the roles of microeconomic theory, public and social choice, history, complexity theory, philosophy, comparative law studies, behavioral economics, and empirical techniques. Each piece introduces the technique, demonstrates its importance to the field of law and economics, and assists the reader in navigating the leading literature on that topic. Learn More

  15. The Timing of Lawmaking

    The Timing of Lawmaking

    Edited by Frank Fagan, Saul Levmore
    Legal reasoning, pronouncements of judgment, the design and implementation of statutes, and even constitution-making and discourse all depend on timing. This compelling study examines the diverse interactions between law and time, and provides important perspectives on how law's architecture can be understood through time. The book revisits older work on legal transitions and breaks new ground on timing rules, especially with respect to how judges, legislators and regulators use time as a tool when devising new rules. At its core, The Timing of Lawmaking goes directly to the heart of the most basic of legal debates: when should we respect the past, and when should we make a clean break for the future? Learn More

Although legal scholars have talked about states as laboratories for decades, rarely has the law and economics literature treated the topic of federalism empirically in such a systematic and useful way.

  20. Law and Economics from an Evolutionary Perspective

    Law and Economics from an Evolutionary Perspective

    Glen Atkinson, Stephen P. Paschall
    Law and economics are interdependent. Using a historical case analysis approach, this book demonstrates how the legal process relates to and is affected by economic circumstances. Glen Atkinson and Stephen P. Paschall examine this co-evolution in the context of the economic development that occurred in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as well as the impact of the law on that development. Specifically, the authors explore the development of a national market, the transformation of the corporation, and the conflict between state and federal control over businesses. Their focus on dynamic, integrated systems presents an alternative to mainstream law and economics. Learn More
