A Comparison Of Auctions And Multilateral Negotiations, Bart Wilson, Charles Thomas Aug 2014

A Comparison Of Auctions And Multilateral Negotiations, Bart Wilson, Charles Thomas

Bart J Wilson

We compare first-price auctions to an exchange process that we term 'multilateral negotiations.' In multilateral negotiations, a buyer solicits price offers for a homogeneous product from sellers with privately known costs, and then plays the sellers off one another to obtain additional price concessions. Using the experimental method, we find that with four sellers, transaction prices are statistically indistinguishable in the two institutions, but with two sellers, prices are higher in multilateral negotiations than in first-price auctions. The institutions are equally efficient with two sellers, but multilateral negotiations are slightly more efficient with four sellers.

Western Frontier Or Feudal Society? Metaphors And Perceptions Of Cyberspace, Alfred C. Yen Nov 2002

Western Frontier Or Feudal Society? Metaphors And Perceptions Of Cyberspace, Alfred C. Yen

Alfred C. Yen

The Article examines how metaphors influence perceptions of cyberspace. Among other things, the Article studies the comparison of cyberspace to the American western frontier and the metaphor's construction cyberspace as a "place" whose natural characteristics guarantee freedom and opportunity. This supports an often-made claim that cyberspace is different from real space, and that government should generally refrain from regulating the Internet.

The Article surveys the basis of the western frontier metaphor in academic history and popular culture and concludes that the metaphor misleads people to overestimate cyberspace's "natural" ability to guarantee freedom and opportunity. The Article accomplishes this in part …


Three Governors: Herman Talmadge, The Georgia Supreme Court And The Gubernatorial Election Of 1946, Lucian E. Dervan Nov 2002

Three Governors: Herman Talmadge, The Georgia Supreme Court And The Gubernatorial Election Of 1946, Lucian E. Dervan

Lucian E Dervan

Herman Talmadge, who died March 21, 2002, was a governor, senator, and Georgia icon who controlled state politics for much of the last half of the 20th century. While many events in Talmadge’s life deserve attention, one event in particular stands out amongst the trials and tribulations, victories and scandals in this long American political life. In 1946, the Georgia gubernatorial election brought a state government to its knees, a state Supreme Court to the height of its power and Talmadge into the national spotlight as a revolver toting aspiring governor.

Rethinking Tort Doctrine: Visions Of A Restatement (Fourth) Of Torts, Stephen D. Sugarman Nov 2002

Rethinking Tort Doctrine: Visions Of A Restatement (Fourth) Of Torts, Stephen D. Sugarman

Stephen D Sugarman

Although current work on the Restatment of Torts (Third) is bringing the state of tort law into the 21st century, I project forward into the future a possible (Fourth) that would radically simplify tort doctrine across what are still treated as quite separate fields (like product liability, medical malpractice, intentional torts). Under my vision, varying responsibiities would arise from differing social roles.


Justice And Reasonable Care In Negligence Law, Richard W. Wright Nov 2002

Justice And Reasonable Care In Negligence Law, Richard W. Wright

Richard W. Wright

The academic literature generally assumes that an aggregate-risk-utility test is employed to determine whether conduct was reasonable or negligent. This aggregate-risk-utility test is a transparent implementation of the basic impartiality and aggregation principles of utilitarianism and the most popular (Kaldor-Hicks) interpretation of economic efficiency. Thus, the test's assumed prevalence as the criterion of reasonableness in negligence law has been highlighted by legal economists as confirmation of the utilitarian efficiency foundations of tort law, while those, including Ronald Dworkin, who think that the law, including tort law, is or should be grounded on principles of justice have sought to demonstrate that, …


Negligence In The Courts: Introduction And Commentary, In Symposium, Negligence In The Courts: The Actual Practice, Richard W. Wright Nov 2002

Negligence In The Courts: Introduction And Commentary, In Symposium, Negligence In The Courts: The Actual Practice, Richard W. Wright

Richard W. Wright

This article is an introduction to and commentary on the contributions to a "Symposium on Negligence in the Courts: the Actual Practice." The contributors all conclude that the tests of negligence that are actually employed by the courts differ from the aggregate-risk-utility test that is generally assumed in the academic literature, including the Restatement of Torts. Patrick Kelley and Laurel Wendt's survey of all the standard jury instructions on negligence in the United States finds only one instruction, in Louisiana, that mentions a risk-utility or cost-benefit test of negligence, and that instruction merely suggests, as a discretionary option, the weighing …


“Counter-Terrorism Law”, Matthew S. R. Palmer Nov 2002

“Counter-Terrorism Law”, Matthew S. R. Palmer

The Hon Justice Matthew Palmer

I suggest that there is no conceptually distinct and coherent body of law we can sensibly call counter-terrorism law.
Terrorist actions are a global problem that must be tackled firmly and effectively. Legislation is a powerful symbol of commitment to do that. And, while the causes of terrorism must be addressed using multi-prong strategies, the acts of terror themselves must be dealt with by the law. But terrorist actions are the same as criminal actions; the difference is that they are politically motivated. Motivation can affect the penalties that are imposed on offenders, but motivation itself is not sensibly the …

Daubism: Copyright Law And Artistic Works, Matthew Rimmer Nov 2002

Daubism: Copyright Law And Artistic Works, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

An artistic controversy over a group of landscape painters called the Daubists provided impetus for copyright law reform in Australia in the early 1990's.
In the first exhibition of Daubism in 1991 driller Jet Armstrong painted a crop circle over a painting of the Olgas by Charles Bannon - an artist, print-maker, and the father of the State Premier at the time, John Bannon. He called the resulting work, Crop Circles on a Bannon Landscape. Armstrong also inserted an inverted crucifix over a painting of the Flinders Ranges by Bannon, and renamed the work The Crop Circle Conspiracy Landscape. In …

Lurking In The Shadow: The Unseen Hand Of Doctrine In Dispute Resolution, Ray Madoff Oct 2002

Lurking In The Shadow: The Unseen Hand Of Doctrine In Dispute Resolution, Ray Madoff

Ray D. Madoff

Mediation - with its promise of less contentious, less expensive and more satisfying resolution of disputes - has been widely recommended for disputes in all areas of the law. Yet its successes have been far from uniform. While it has flourished in some areas - most notably divorce and child custody - it has met with much greater resistance in others. This is particularly puzzling for areas of the law such as will disputes, for which mediation would seem to provide so many benefits.

In this essay I argue that the answer to this conundrum can be found in doctrine …


"Hidden" Costs: A Case Study Of Bank And Borrowing And Interest Rate Swaps, Christian Johnson Oct 2002

"Hidden" Costs: A Case Study Of Bank And Borrowing And Interest Rate Swaps, Christian Johnson

Christian A. Johnson

Large money center and regional banks actively target and market interest rate swaps to middle market borrowers. Because these customers borrow at a variable rate, their bankers encourage them to hedge interest rate risk by concurrently entering into interest rate swaps.
