Summary

This book constitutes an excellent short introduction to the burgeoning subdiscipline of law and economics.Using non-technical language and using only basic mathematics, the book deals concisely with the main methodological questions but still covers a wide range of topics, with greater emphasis on public law and important sections on labour law, business and regulatory impact analysis. The book should be of great use to lawyers and other jurists, economists and students of law, as well as economics practitioners and academics who need an interesting and user-friendly introduction to law and economics.
