Judge Richard A. Posner’s work on the economics of public law is a critical component of the interaction between the new law and economics movement and public choice theory. It exemplifies the parallel influence that these two important intellectual movements have had on the current understanding of legal institutions. Together with an insightful introduction by Francesco Parisi, this volume brings together his most important contributions on areas such as:

• the economics of constitutional law and legislation
• the economics of criminal law
• the economics of labour law and employment discrimination
• the economics of antitrust.

The Economics of Public Law will be essential reading for economists, lawyers and judges alike.
