About this product
- DescriptionThis collection of essays explores the most relevant developments at the interface of ecomics and psychology, giving special attention to models of irrational behavior, and draws the relevant implications of such models for the design of legal rules and institutions. The application of ecomic models of irrational behavior to law is especially challenging because specific departures from rational behavior differ markedly from one ather. Furthermore, the analytical and deductive instruments of ecomic theory have to be reshaped to deal with the fragmented and heterogeneous findings of psychological research, turning towards a more experimental and inductive methodology. This volume brings together pioneering scholars in this area, along with some of the most exciting developments in the field of legal and ecomic theory. Areas of application include criminal law and sentencing, tort law, contract law, corporate law, and financial markets.
