9780123494825: Law and Economics, Third Edition: An Introductory Analysis

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

About the Author:

Professor Werner Z. Hirsch has been active in the field of Law and Economics since the early 1970s. Not only has he been active in the theoretical side of the field, but also in the practice of it by participating in the law-making process as an advisor and committee member on numerous occasions. In addition, he has served as an expert witness in a host of court cases, where he has given input on the economic rationale behind the laws. He is currently a professor in the UCLA Department of Economics, where his major interests lie in the fields of Law and Economics, Urban Economics, and Public Finance.

Review:

Praise for this Edition "Among the leading analysts in law and economics, Werner Hirsch displays a special interest in the empirical implications of scholarship in this field. For that and many other reasons, his textbook is very welcome." --GARY T. SCHWARTZ, University of California School of Law, Los Angeles

"Werner Hirsch's book stands alone among law-and-economics texts in its use of empirical data to test and inform economic theorems, and in its broad, non-ideological approach. The Third Edition is an excellent textbook and a real contribution to the field." --RICHARD H. SANDER, University of California, Los Angeles

"Few schools of thought have had as much of an impact on modern American law as law and economics, and few, if any, works on the subject are as comprehensive and understandable as Professor Hirsch's Law and Economics: An Introductory Analysis, Third Edition. Professor Hirsch collects some of the most important views on law and economics, and combines them with his own impressive understanding, to create a remarkable work that will open new horizons to all who read it." --ALEX KOZINSKI, U.S. Circuit Judge, Pasadena, California
