Law and economics : an institutional perspective by Warren J Samuels( Book )

24 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together a number of articles, for the most part already pub lished, that develop a contemporary institutionalist approach to the study of the economic role of government. The institutionalist tradition in these matters began with the work of Henry Carter Adams on economics and jurisprudence! and Richard T. Ely on the relation of the institutions of property and contract 2 to the distribution of wealth. It continued with John R. Commons's monu 3 mental analytical and historical study of the legal foundations of capitalism, Edwin E. Witte's work on the role of government in the economy,4 and Ken s neth Parson's study of economic developmenL The approach to law and economics that is developed in this book centers on (1) an identification of the objective fundamentals of the interrelations between legal and economic pro· cesses and (2) the development of skills with which to analyze and predict the performance consequences of alternative institutional designs. We must stress that our principal goal is quite simply to understand what is going on-to identify the instrumental variables and fundamental issues and processes-in the operation of legal institutions of economic significance. We envision government as an object of legal control. We also see law as an instrument of securing economic gain and advantage-that is, as a wealth producing and -acquiring alternative

This companion offers a comprehensive and sophisticated exploration of the history of economic thought. It has a threefold focus: the history of economic thought; the history of economics as a discipline; and the historiography of economic thought. The essays in the first section focus on the history of economic ideas, with topics ranging from ancient, Medieval and Islamic thought, to Marxian, Utopian and post-war thought. The second section explores important historiographical topics, including the sociology of economics, methodology, exegesis and textuality. Each short essay serves as a complex introduction to the chosen topic, and gathered together they provide an extensive synthesis of the field as a whole. The volume should be a useful resource for anyone researching or studying the history of economic thought, and will also serve as a text for courses in this area
