Abstract

In The Future of Law & Economics: Essays in Reform and Recollection,1 Professor Judge Guido Calabresi draws a fascinating picture of the intricate relationship between law and economics. Calabresi argues that not only is law influenced by economic analysis, but also the converse is true: law affects (and should affect) economic theory. In this essay, I review the book's main ideas and express some thoughts about Calabresi's arguments and about the field of law and economics and its future.
