The Economics of Lawmaking

Francesco Parisi and Vincy Fon

  • There is a literature on the effects of different types of legal systems, but this book will provide the only resource discussing their origin.
  • This book is an essential research and reference tool for law and economics scholars and is expected to be widely cited
  • Lawmaking has never been approached from a law and economics point of view. The authors analyze four different methods of lawmaking: lawmaking through legislation; lawmaking through adjudication; lawmaking through practice; and lawmaking through agreement.
