Reconstructing The Taiwanese Rule On Pure Economic Loss: Establishing A General Standard For Recovery For Pure Economic Loss In Unintentional Torts, Wen-Hsuan Yang

Theses and Dissertations

An important issue in Taiwan today is whether pure economic loss can be recovered as a right under the former part of first paragraph of Article 184 in Civil Code of Taiwan, thereby making it recoverable in unintentional torts. Contrary to most scholars in Taiwan, this Thesis argues that 1) pure economic loss should be a recognizable harm under the former part of first paragraph of Article 184; and 2) economic loss should be considered on a category-by-category basis, rather than the traditional all-or-none basis presently used in Taiwan.
