About this title

Synopsis:

Providing students with a method to apply economic analysis to the study of legal rules and institutions, this work uses recent advances in microeconomics to develop economic theories in four cores areas of the law - property, contracts, torts and crime. The book features a discussion of the use of game theory to understand the law. It also includes empirical literature on such topics as product liability, medical malpractice and crime and punishment.
