  1. Law and the State

    Law and the State

    Edited by Alain Marciano, Jean-Michel Josselin
    Law and the State provides a political economy analysis of the legal functioning of a democratic state, illustrating how it builds on informational and legal constraints. It explains, in an organised and thematic fashion, how competitive information enhances democracy while strategic information endangers it, and discusses how legal constraints stress the dilemma of independence versus discretion for judges as well as the elusive role of administrators and experts.

  2. New Perspectives on Economic Crime

    New Perspectives on Economic Crime

    Edited by Hans Sjögren, Göran Skogh

  3. Post-Chicago Developments in Antitrust Law

    Post-Chicago Developments in Antitrust Law

    Edited by Antonio Cucinotta, Roberto Pardolesi, Roger J. Van den Bergh
    This book offers a timely and critical evaluation of the Chicago School approach to antitrust law. Recent judgements by the United States Supreme Court (in cases such as Kodak) and the debate surrounding the Microsoft monopoly have led to the view that antitrust has entered the post-Chicago era, in which previous immoderations are tempered, and more refined and accurate analyses take precedence. This claim is made at a time when European competition policy is gradually embracing an economics-based approach. The authors discuss the economic foundations of competition policy and the different ways in which both American and European competition law does – or does not – take account of economic insights. Although the book makes no claim to provide a definitive answer to the host of questions arising from the complexities of antitrust, it does offer an important contribution to a better understanding of the many ‘interfaces’ between economic thinking and sound legal policy.

  4. The Economics of Harmonizing European Law

    The Economics of Harmonizing European Law

    Edited by Alain Marciano, Jean-Michel Josselin
    One of the major effects of the continual process of European integration is the growing importance of transnational institutions and the accompanying legal harmonization. Such institutional changes have led to a seemingly irreversible transformation in public decision making, whereby power at the national level is displaced to the European and regional levels. This essential book provides a law and economics analysis of the challenges arising from these shifts in authority. Learn More

  5. Economic Efficiency in Law and Economics

    Economic Efficiency in Law and Economics

    Richard O. Zerbe
    In this path-breaking book, Richard Zerbe introduces a new way to think about the concept of economic efficiency that is both consistent with its historical derivation and more useful than concepts currently used. He establishes an expanded version of Kaldor–Hicks efficiency as an axiomatic system that performs the following tasks: the new approach obviates certain technical and ethical criticisms that have been made of economic efficiency; it answers critics of efficiency; it allows an expanded range for efficiency analysis; it establishes the conditions under which economists can reasonably say that some state of the world is inefficient. He then applies the new analysis to a number of hard and fascinating cases, including the economics of duelling, cannibalism and rape. He develops a new theory of common law efficiency and indicates the circumstances under which the common law will be inefficient. Learn More
