Law and economics : an introductory analysis by Werner Z Hirsch( Book )

Since the publication of the second edition of Law and Economics in 1988, there have been major developments in economics, jurisprudence, and in the field of law and economics. These changes are reflected in the updated and improved Third Edition. About 30% of the material in the new edition is different. The reader will find that the book incorporates recent scholarly contributions and court rulings on, for example, the Takings Clause of the constitution, the high-tech communication revolution in determining what constitutes a legal contract, no-fault insurance and its economic effects, and empirical cost-benefit analysis of environmental laws. Moreover, attention is paid to recent developments in anti-monopoly law as applied to high-tech information and communication firms. Students in management, policy, law, economics, and business programs, as well as law professionals, find the new edition of Law and Economics has kept up with the changing economic and legal climate

Inventing education for the future by Werner Z Hirsch( Book )

11 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational enterprise must keep pace with the rest of society. Unfortunately, one by-product of the rich tradition in this field is enough inertia to make education cumbersome and slow to respond to a changing environment. There are several reasons why changes in education must be brought about: increased longevity in the lives of the population; increased automation in production and service, making necessary an upgrading of the work force; technological changes that demand training against obsolescence; and increased leisure time and improved standards of living, both of which provide opportunities to educate for citizenship as well as for a career. Several innovations have been or can be used to realize the necessary changes. They include computerized instruction, educational games (which seem to be particularly suited for disadvantaged groups), and improved planning and forecasting techniques for economic and administrative purposes. Prospects for change depend on such inhibiting or facilitating factors in society as traditional morality, social values, and the attitudes of legislators, teachers, and parents. (Oh)
