Since the publication of the second edition of Law and Economics in 1988, there have been major developments in economics, jurisprudence, and in the field of law and economics. These changes are reflected in the updated and improved Third Edition. About 30% of the material in the new edition is different. The reader will find that the book incorporates recent scholarly contributions and court rulings on, for example, the Takings Clause of the constitution, the high-tech communication revolution in determining what constitutes a legal contract, no-fault insurance and its economic effects, and empirical cost-benefit analysis of environmental laws. Moreover, attention is paid to recent developments in anti-monopoly law as applied to high-tech information and communication firms. Students in management, policy, law, economics, and business programs, as well as law professionals, find the new edition of Law and Economics has kept up with the changing economic and legal climate.
* Features new examinations of the takings clause of the Constitution, contract law, and tort law
* Includes new cost-benefit analyses in chapters on criminal law and environmental law
* Offers new insights into anti-monopoly laws, especially policies concerning high-tech industries
