Chinese Jurisprudence And Hong Kong Law, Kam Wong Sep 2015

Chinese Jurisprudence And Hong Kong Law, Kam Wong

Kam C. Wong

On July 1, 1997, Hong Kong, a colony (euphemistically called dependent territory) of Britain, was returned to the fold of the motherland, China, as a Special Administration Region (SAR), with a high degree of autonomy. Ten years on, we find that the common law system established by the British in Hong Kong, as guaranteed by the Basic law, survived and thrived. A cursory review of legal and social science literature shows that there is little scholarly discourse or public debate on the proper jurisprudential standards to be applied in the making and evaluating Hong Kong legislation. This research raises a ...

Mandating Public School Attendance: A Proposal For Achieving Racial And Class Integration, Thomas Kleven Jul 2015

Mandating Public School Attendance: A Proposal For Achieving Racial And Class Integration, Thomas Kleven

Thomas Kleven

The paper argues that big city school districts should consider mandating that all children attend public school as a means of integrating their schools racially and economically. Many educators believe that racial and class integration is necessary to equalize educational opportunity. A major factor impeding integration is that many minority and lower income children are essentially trapped in inner city schools where most students are from the same socio-economic and ethnic background. Much of this racial and class separation is the result of white and middle class flight to suburbia over the past 50 years or so. Nevertheless, because significant ...

Fixed Revenue Auctions: Theory And Behavior, Bart Wilson, Cary Deck Aug 2014

Fixed Revenue Auctions: Theory And Behavior, Bart Wilson, Cary Deck

Bart J Wilson

In this paper, we study auctions in which the revenue is fixed but the quantity is determined by the auction mechanism. Specifically, we investigate the theory and behavior of English quantity clock, Dutch quantity clock, last-quantity sealed bid, and penultimate-quantity sealed bid auctions. For theoretically equivalent fixed quantity and fixed revenue auctions, we find that fixed revenue auctions are robust to all the previously observed empirical regularities in fixed quantity auctions.

While most stakeholders paint the promise of ambient intelligence (AmI) in sunny colours, there is a dark side to AmI as well. In a way, this dark side is inherent in the very nature of AmI. Intelligent networks embedded everywhere will enable data aggregators to acquire a lot more personal information, far more than in today’s world, greatly magnifying the risk of abuse of that data. Most AmI scenarios show the benefits of AmI. The dark scenarios developed by the SWAMI project (Safeguards in a World of Ambient Intelligence) , one of which follows, are different from most other AmI ...


Addressing The South-South "Exception" In The World Of Bits: The Cases Of Latin America And India, Stephania Bonilla, Rosa Castro Jun 2014

Addressing The South-South "Exception" In The World Of Bits: The Cases Of Latin America And India, Stephania Bonilla, Rosa Castro

Rosa J Castro

This paper focuses attention on a noteworthy, yet unexplained aspect of international investment protection, i.e. the sharp increase in the number of South-South BITs, and seeks to analyze this change through a law-and-economics lens and a comparative focus. The authors examine the proliferation of South-South investment agreements globally, and within Latin America and India in particular. Several studies show that from the late 1990s onwards, foreign direct investment flows originating from, and directed towards, developing countries appear to be growing faster than those from developed to developing countries. At the same time, the number of South-South investment agreements being ...


The Transatlantic Divergence In Legal Thought: American Law And Economics Vs. German Doctrinalism, Kristoffel Grechenig, Martin Gelter Apr 2014

The Transatlantic Divergence In Legal Thought: American Law And Economics Vs. German Doctrinalism, Kristoffel Grechenig, Martin Gelter

Kristoffel Grechenig

Economic analysis plays a major role in the American legal discourse, while its position in the German-speaking legal debate remains comparatively limited. In Germany and Austria, a widespread aversion against law and economics can be observed among legal scholars. This article advances an explanation for this divergence on the basis of two main factors: First, American legal realism enjoyed great success, whereas the German free-law movement failed to leave a lasting impression. While legal realism transformed American legal thought and opened up the discourse to policy arguments, the predominant German legal theory emphasizes the internal coherence of the legal system ...


Popular Election Of The President: Use Or Abuse Of The Electoral College, Jennifer Hendricks Mar 2014

Popular Election Of The President: Use Or Abuse Of The Electoral College, Jennifer Hendricks

Jennifer S. Hendricks

Last year, Maryland became the first state to adopt the Agreement Among the States to Elect the President by National Popular Vote. It was joined early this year by New Jersey. If enough states sign on to this agreement to control the Electoral College, they will all pledge their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote, without regard to which candidate won in each individual state. The compact would effectively supersede the Electoral College and implement popular election of the president without amending the Constitution. Political supporters of the Agreement have been curiously reticent to ...

The New Role For Assurance Services In Global Commerce, Margaret Blair, Cynthia Williams, Li-Wen Lin Nov 2013

The New Role For Assurance Services In Global Commerce, Margaret Blair, Cynthia Williams, Li-Wen Lin

Li-Wen Lin

In this Article, we examine the rapid emergence and expansion of a private-sector compliance and enforcement infrastructure that we believe increasingly may be providing a substitute for public and legal regulatory infrastructure in global commerce, especially in developing countries where rule of law is weak and court systems are absent or inadequate. This infrastructure is provided by a proliferation of performance codes and standards, and a rapidly growing global army of privately trained and authorized inspectors and certifiers that we call the "third party assurance industry." The growth in the third party assurance business has been phenomenal in the last ...
