About this product
- DescriptionThe regulation of invation and the optimal design of legal institutions in an environment of uncertainty are two of the most important policy challenges of the twenty-first century. Invation is critical to ecomic growth. Regulatory design decisions and, in particular, competition policy and intellectual property regimes can have profound consequences for ecomic growth. However, remarkably little is kwn about the relationship between invation, competition and regulatory policy. Any legal regime must attempt to assess the trade-offs associated with rules that will affect incentives to invate, allocative efficiency, competition, and freedom of ecomic actors to commercialize the fruits of their invative labors. The essays in this book approach this critical set of problems from an ecomic perspective, relying on the tools of microecomics, quantitative analysis and comparative institutional analysis to explore and begin to provide answers to the myriad challenges facing policymakers.
