He lives in Tallahassee, Florida.

Review:

"Benson's book is an important contribution to law and economics literature. He properly emphasizes the role of institutions in shaping incentive and the role of incentives in shaping institutions."  —Henry G. Manne, dean emeritus, School of Law, George Mason University



“In The Enterprise of Law, Bruce Benson provides us with the most comprehensive treatise on private sector alternatives to government law enforcement available today. Benson systematically addresses all the issues, arguments, and objections surrounding the growing role of market institutions in the legal system. But his book is more than a mere defense of current privatization trends in protective services, corrections, and dispute resolution. The Enterprise of Law questions the seemingly axiomatic proposition that law and order are “necessary functions of government.”  —CATO Journal



“Benson's book, The Enterprise of Law, promises to do for privately produced law what [Lawrence] White's work did for free banking. Benson has produced a carefully researched and comprehensive introduction to polycentric law. It is sure to stimulate further work in the field. . . . . I suggest Benson's The Enterprise of Law as the best general overview of the field.”  —Tom W. Bell, law professor, Chapman University
