¿En Qué Momento Se Jodió El Sur? Crecimiento Económico, Derechos De Propiedad Y Regulación Del Crédito En Las Colonias Británicas Y Españolas En América, Enrique Pasquel
Las instituciones legales de las colonias británicas y españolas pueden ayudar a explicar los distintos niveles de desarrollo económico en esas regiones. Este artículo se centra en el marco legal de los derechos de propiedad y el mercado del crédito en la época colonial, analizando las políticas de asignación de tierras, el establecimiento de registros, los programas de titulación, las cargas sobre la tierra y las restricciones al crédito.

Standardization As A Solution To The Reading Costs Of Form Contracts, 2009 University ofTexas at Austin
Standardization As A Solution To The Reading Costs Of Form Contracts, Abraham L. Wickelgren
Abraham L. Wickelgren
It is well-known that a monopolist cannot commit to offer a high quality contract to a consumer reading costs are postive. This paper shows that this also holds in a competitive environment with consumer heterogeneity if the contract space is unrestricted. If firms can offer standardized contracts from a finite set, however, each with a standardized name, this paper shows that, when reading costs are not too large, there exists an equilibrium in which firms offer the most efficient contracts from the set of named contracts and consumers purchase the most efficient contracts offered without incurring any reading costs.
The Telltale Sign Of Discrimination: Probabilities, Information Asymmetries, And The Systemic Disparate Treatment Theory, 2009 Penn State Dickinson School of Law
The Telltale Sign Of Discrimination: Probabilities, Information Asymmetries, And The Systemic Disparate Treatment Theory, Jason R. Bent
Jason R Bent
The systemic disparate treatment theory of employment discrimination is in disarray. Originally formulated in United States v. International B’hood of Teamsters, 431 U.S. 324, 360-61 (1977), the systemic disparate treatment theory provides plaintiffs with a method for creating an inference of unlawful discriminatory intent if plaintiffs can first present sufficient statistical evidence establishing that the employer was engaged in a “pattern or practice” of discrimination. While the Court and scholars have recently given substantial attention to the disparate impact theory, they have not adequately analyzed the contours of the systemic disparate treatment theory. For example, there are currently ...

Law At A Crossroads: Losing The Thread Of Regaining Control? The Collapse Of Distance In Real Time Computing, Mireille Hildebrandt
Control at a distance (cybernetics) has been one of the achievements of modern law. Since the advent of the printing press, written law has been instrumental for those in power to rule over a large jurisdiction with a great many subjects: enabling sovereign power to rule by law. Moving from absolutism to the rule of law basically meant that law gained a measure of autonomy between ruler and subjects, still providing the means to govern but also providing individual citizens with legal instruments to resist those in charge. This chapter argues that both the rule by law and the rule ...
Equitable And Adequate Funding For Special Needs Children In Louisiana, 2009 Loyola University New Orleans College of Law
Equitable And Adequate Funding For Special Needs Children In Louisiana, Robert A. Garda Jr.
Robert A. Garda
Comprehensive and coordinated special education remains a major problem across public schools in Louisiana. One issue arises due to the fact that special education money in some districts is allotted at the district level instead of following students to the schools they attend, resulting in inconsistent support for schools serving students with multiple types of disabilities. Money is not allocated based on student needs and the neediest students do not receive the services the funding is intended to provide.
Louisiana Appleseed and the Louisiana Bar Foundation have recruited volunteer attorneys to: (1) research Louisiana Minimum Foundation Program (MFP) formulas and ...

Heller's Self-Defense, Boaz Sangero
Prof. Boaz Sangero
This article reflects on District of Columbia v. Heller and proposes a new footing and limit to the right to bear arms: a person’s inalienable right to selfdefense. Self-defense is a natural right embedded in personhood and is antecedent to the social contract that sets up a state. This right consequently remains with the person following the establishment of the state and allows her to use proportional force necessary for resisting aggression. The right to bear arms derives from the constitutional right to self-defense, which merits protection under both the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments. This instrumental nexus calls for ...
Anthropology, History And The "More Economic Approach" In European Competition Law - A Review Essay, 2009 Chicago-Kent College of Law
Anthropology, History And The "More Economic Approach" In European Competition Law - A Review Essay, David J. Gerber
David J. Gerber
In several works over the last decade, Wolfgang Fikentscher has reminded us that there are ways of viewing competition law that need not begin and end with economics—its concepts, its language, and its science-based normative stance. Discussions of competition law in the United States and increasingly in Europe generally dismiss or marginalize views of competition law that are not circumscribed by economic science. In the works reviewed here, Fikentscher takes issue with the so-called “more economic approach” to law, particularly, competition law. As he has said on other occasions, he favors “a less economic approach” to competition law. Many ...
Regulation By Markets And Higher Education, 2009 RMIT University
Regulation By Markets And Higher Education, Benedict Sheehy
Markets have a number of uses. One increasingly important use by politicians is as a means of regulating the supply and distribution of goods and services formerly supplied and distributed by governments on non-market bases. The use of markets as a regulator of higher education is not novel. However, the increased reliance on markets as a regulator of higher education is an on-going experiment with certain predictable failures. This article explores the uses of the market in the supply and distribution of higher education and weighs it against the stated policy objectives, with particular attention to the application proposed in ...

Convergence In The Treatment Of Dominant Firm Conduct: The United States, The European Union, And The Institutional Embeddedness Of Economics, David J. Gerber
David J. Gerber
Discussions of the competition law treatment of dominant firms often center on the issue of whether EU and U.S. law in this area are likely to converge and thereby provide a more uniform legal terrain for the activities of such firms. Curiously, however, discussions of convergence seldom pay careful attention to key issues such as “What are the differences in the role of economics in the respective legal systems and which factors are likely to affect significantly the likelihood of convergence?”. They often hover in a somewhat mystical realm in which convergence is just expected to “happen”.

The Sit-Ins And The State Action Doctrine, Christopher W. Schmidt
Christopher W. Schmidt
By taking their seats at “whites only” lunch counters across the South in the spring of 1960, African American students not only launched a dramatic new stage in the civil rights movement, they also sparked a national reconsideration of the scope of the constitutional equal protection requirement. The critical constitutional question raised by the sit-in movement was whether the Fourteenth Amendment, which after Brown v. Board of Education (1954) prohibited racial segregation in schools and other state-operated facilities, applied to privately owned accommodations open to the general public. From the perspective of the student protesters, the lunch counter operators, and ...
Protocols For Expeditious, Cost‐Effective Commercial Arbitration: Key Action Steps For Business Users, Counsel, Arbitrators & Arbitration Provider Institutions, Thomas J. Stipanowich
Thomas J. Stipanowich
Despite meaningful efforts to promote better practices and ensure quality among arbitrators and advocates, criticism of American commercial arbitration is at a crescendo. Much of this criticism stems from the fact that business‐to‐business arbitration has taken on the trappings of litigation—extensive discovery and motion practice, highly contentious advocacy, long cycle time and high cost. While many business users still prefer arbitration to court trial because of other procedural advantages, the great majority of complaints being voiced by arbitration users are the same: commercial arbitration now costs just as much, and takes just as long, as litigation. Clients ...
Behind The Neutral: The Critical Role Of Provider Institutions, 2009 Pepperdine University
Behind The Neutral: The Critical Role Of Provider Institutions, Thomas J. Stipanowich
Thomas J. Stipanowich
In the last generation the “quiet revolution” in conflict resolution has spawned a vast array of organizations sponsoring or promoting the services of arbitrators and mediators. These “provider institutions” are often in a position, directly or indirectly, to exert significant influence on the lives and fortunes of individuals in all sectors of society. For this reason they have become increasingly visible, the focus of growing scrutiny and, in some cases, regulation. This article explores the roles of providers and the need for greater awareness of their impact.
