Adopting a rational choice framework, the authors show that International Law is a term that we use to refer to variously circumscribed cases of international cooperation. States are able to cooperate through International Law but only under narrow conditions; much of International Law merely ratifies existing relationships, and has no independent normative force. Indeed, recent efforts to replace international politics with law and judicial process rests on a misunderstanding of the past accomplishments of International Law. "The Limits of International Law" will have important implications for debates about the role of International Law in the foreign policy of the United States and other nations+-+4483160465134820ocn609351542file20070.56Posner, Eric ATerror in the balance security, liberty, and the courtsIntroduction.

With The Perils of Global Legalism, Eric A. Posner explains that such views demonstrate a dangerously naive tendency toward legalism--an idealistic belief that law can be effective even in the absence of legitimate institutions of governance. After tracing the historical roots of the concept, Posner carefully+-+792021177570413ocn042953036book20000.63Posner, Eric ALaw and social norms"What is the role of law in a society in which order is maintained mostly through social norms, trust, and nonlegal sanctions? Eric Posner argues that social norms are sometimes desirable yet sometimes odious, and that the law is critical to enhancing good social norms and undermining bad ones. But he also argues that the proper regulation of such norms is a delicate and complex task, and that current understanding of them is inadequate for guiding judges and lawmakers. What is needed, and what this book offers, is a model of the relationship between law and social norms. The model shows that people's concern with establishing cooperative relationships leads them to engage in certain kinds of imitative behavior. The resulting behavioral patterns are called social norms."--BOOK JACKET+-+210655921566011ocn819323261file20120.59Posner, Eric AEconomic foundations of international lawMain description: The ever-increasing exchange of goods and ideas among nations, as well as cross-border pollution, global warming, and international crime, pose urgent questions for international law. Here, two respected scholars provide an intellectual framework for assessing these pressing legal problems from a rational choice perspective. The approach assumes that states are rational, forward-looking agents which use international law to address the actions of other states that may have consequences for their own citizens, and to obtain the benefits of international cooperation. It further assumes that in the absence of a central enforcement agency-that is, a world government-international law must be self-enforcing. States must believe that if they violate international agreements, other states will retaliate. Consequently, Eric A. Posner and Alan O. Sykes devote considerable attention to the challenges of enforcing international law, which begin with the difficulties of determining what it is. In the absence of an international constitution, the sources for international law are vague. Lawyers must rely on statements contained in all manner of official documents and on simple observation of states' behavior. This looseness leads international institutions such as the United Nations to deliver conflicting interpretations of the law's most basic principles. The authors describe the conditions under which international law succeeds or fails, across a wide range of issues, including war crimes, human rights, international criminal law, principles of state responsibility, law of the sea, international trade regulation, and international investment law62113ocn615629241com20100.56Posner, Eric ALaw and happinessConference proceedingsThis book explores the rapidly developing area of research called hedonics or "happiness studies."

Political, cultural and social restraints, they argue, have been more effective in preventing dictatorship than any law. The executive-centered state tends to generate political checks that substitute for the legal checks of the Madisonian constitution."--pub. desc+-+78801244655367ocn065187391book20060.73Adler, Matthew DNew foundations of cost-benefit analysis"In this book, the authors reconceptualize cost-benefit analysis, arguing that its objective should be overall well-being rather than economic efficiency. They show why the link between preferences and well-being is more complicated than economists have thought. This book not only places cost-benefit analysis on a firmer theoretical foundation, but also has many practical implications for how government agencies should undertake cost-benefit studies."--Résumé de l'éditeur+-+842775921551213ocn460936151book20100.73Posner, Eric AClimate change justiceClimate change and justice are so closely associated that many take it for granted that a global climate treaty should directly address both issues together.

This volume gathers prominent contributors from law, economics, and philosophy for discussion of cost-benefit analysis, specifically its moral foundations, applications and limitations. This new scholarly debate includes not only economists, but also contributors from philosophy, cognitive psychology, legal studies, and public policy who can further illuminate the justification and moral implications of this method and specify alternative measures+-+78125517753242135ocn044213693book20000.81Chicago lectures in law and economics+-+672471110620913ocn042736401book20000.66Law and economics+-+53457190251426ocn074968724book20070.73Social norms, nonlegal sanctions, and the law+-+1049790936964ocn647672847book20100.66Posner, Eric AEconomics of public international lawA theory of customary international law Jack L.

A house in foreclosure is worth 30 to 50 percent less than a house that a homeowner either retains or sells on the market, and a foreclosed house damages neighboring property values as well. We advocate a reform of Chapter 13 that would allow homeowners to strip down the value of their mortgages in a prepackaged bankruptcy. Such a plan would give homeowners an incentive to keep or resell their homes, thus reducing the market value loss of homes while protecting the effective value of creditors' interests. Two further key elements of the plan are that it uses prices based on the average house price in a particular ZIP code, which reduces moral hazard; and it is automated, requiring only a rubber stamp by a bankruptcy judge or other official, thus preserving judicial resources. Other plans, including that of the Obama administration, are compared."102ocn850220059file20050.53Tushnet, Mark VThe constitution in wartime : beyond alarmism and complacencyEssays by leading constitutional scholars on the relationship between war powers and the Constitution in general and in the aftermath of September 11th+-+410988773595ocn041126782book19980.33Goldsmith, Jack LA theory of customary international law11ocn064576003book20050.47Mofidi, ManooherApplying rational choice theory to customary international law : Enrichment or impoverishment?+-+4483160465+-+4483160465Fri Mar 21 15:16:28 EDT 2014batch24186
