Economic Analysis of Tort and Regulatory Law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


This will not be a traditional country report as requested in the questionnaire since this paper deals with the relationship between tort law and regulatory law from a particular angle, being law and economics. As a consequence, the order proposed in the questionnaire cannot be followed within the scope of this report. I will simply try to address the way the law and economics literature has dealt with the choice between liability rules and safety regulation and with the influence of safety regulation on tort law. These issues are crucial for this project and are indeed dealt with in the rich law and economics literature.
