The law and economics of cybersecurity by Mark F Grady( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cybersecurity is a leading national problem for which the market may fail to produce a solution. The ultimate source is that computer owners lack adequate incentives to invest in security because they bear fully the costs of their security precautions but share the benefits with their network partners. In a world of positive transaction costs, individuals often select less than optimal security levels. The problem is compounded because the insecure networks extend far beyond the regulatory jurisdiction of any one nation or even coalition of nations. This book brings together the views of leading law and economics scholars on the nature of the cybersecurity problem and possible solutions to it. Many of these solutions are market based, but they need some help, either from government or industry groups, or both, indeed, the cybersecurity problem prefigures a host of 21st-century problems created by information technology and the globalization of markets."--Jacket
The Italian legal system : an introduction by Michael A Livingston( )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For fifty years, the first edition of The Italian Legal System has been the gold standard among English-language works on the Italian legal system. The book's original authors, Mauro Cappelletti, John Henry Merryman, and Joseph M. Perillo, provided not only an overview of Italian law, but a definition of the field and an important contribution to comparative law scholarship. The book explains the unique 'Italian style' in doctrine, law, and interpretation, and introduces readers to Italian legal history, government, the legal profession, and civil procedure and evidence. In this fully updated and revised second edition, Michael A. Livingston, Pier Giuseppe Monateri, and Francesco Parisi describe the substantial changes in Italian law and society in the intervening five decades - including the creation and impact of the European Union, and advances in comparative law. The second edition poses timely, relevant questions of whether and to what extent the Italian style of law has survived the pressures of European unification, American influence, and the globalization of law and society"--Unedited summary from book cover
The law and economics of irrational behavior( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays explores developments at the interface of economics 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 economic models of irrational behavior to law is especially challenging because specific departures from rational behavior differ markedly from one another
The economics of lawmaking by Francesco Parisi( Book )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origins of law and economics : essays by the founding fathers( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique collection of largely unpublished papers brings together the founding fathers of law and economics to provide their own views on the origins and intellectual history of the field." "These 16 essays (including three by Nobel Laureates in Economic Sciences) provide an impressive blend of differing experiences and varying perspectives, reflecting on the intellectual foundations of the field, its early struggles for recognition, and its remarkable advance during the last four decades of the twentieth century, and into the twenty-first. The essays clearly outline, and contribute new insights into, all of the central issues of this still vibrant research programme. A unifying theme of the book is the central importance attached by each scholar to scientific analysis, rather than to any particular ideology or dogma." "This book provides an absorbing intellectual history of law and economics, and will be a fascinating read for academics and researchers with an interest in law and economics, the history of economic thought, public choice and public policy."--Jacket
The language of law and economics : a dictionary by Francesco Parisi( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From a historical perspective, 'law and economics' was one of the most influential developments in legal scholarship in the twentieth century; it remains today one of the dominant perspectives on the law, generating a tremendous quantity of new research and discussion. Unfortunately, the rewards of applying the analytical methods of one highly technical field to the historically layered substance of another has resulted in considerable overhead, requiring fluency in both the language of economics and the language of the law. Further complicating matters, law and economics has sometimes developed independently, creating new terms, while recasting others from their original economic or legal meanings. In this dictionary of law and economics, Francesco Parisi provides a comprehensive and concise guide to the language and key concepts underlying this fecund interdisciplinary tradition. The first reference work of its kind, it will prove to be an invaluable resource for professionals, students and scholars"--

This reader brings together some seminal papers on law and economics, with special emphasis on the foundational contributions to the economics of property, contracts and torts.

These papers have provided the foundations for the development of an overarching economic theory of law and, most importantly, have opened new areas of research for present and future generations of jurists and economists alike
