A HISTORY OF LAW AND ECONOMICS, 1870 - 1970: PROPERTY, STATE AND THE MARKET
Dina I. Waked Short Abstract
The purpose of this work is to to construct an alternative history of law and economics (L&E). One, that is rid from the mainstream’s allegation that L&E was born in the 1960s to Chicago scholars who revived the interaction between law and economics, which they argue, lay dormant since Bentham writing in 1789. It provides a journey through one hundred years of economic and legal thought, between 1870 and 1970. It highlights how law and economics have continued to interact, to be entangled and to produce a common language. Both legal and economic thought have gone through immense transformations that have shaped their discourses over the years. I have chosen to focus on only three of these transformations, that I refer to as paradigm shifts, that I consider significant to the story I narrate.

BOOK SYNOPSIS
The book argues that we live in a world in which the victims of cross-border mass torts de facto lack a court to turn to in order to pursue legal action against multinational corporations responsible for disasters, atrocities, and other harms. And even though tort victims ultimately receive no redress, corporations must nonetheless spend large sums to defend against sprawling, parallel litigations. The only way to provide a fair, legitimate, and efficient process for both victims and corporations is to create an International Court of Civil Justice (ICCJ). The book presents both justice-based and economics-based arguments in favor of an ICCJ. Closely associated with the economic arguments is a broader explanation for why the proposal is not only timely but also, perhaps counterintuitively, politically viable. The book also provides a procedural and institutional design for such a court, addressing such issues as personal and subject-matter jurisdiction, remedies, appeal, preclusion, and judicial independence.
