Confidence games : money and markets in a world without redemption / Mark C. Taylor.

Location: lax
Call #: HB72 .T32 2004
Publisher: University of Chicago Press,


According to Taylor, money and markets do not exist in a vacuum but grow in a profoundly cultural medium, reflecting and in turn shaping their world. To understand the recent changes in our economy, it is not enough to analyze the impact of politics and technologyone must consider the influence of art, philosophy, and religion as well. Bringing John Calvin, G. W. F. Hegel, and Adam Smith to Wall Street by way of Las Vegas, Taylor first explores the historical and psychological origins of money, the importance of religious beliefs and practices for the emergence of markets, and the unexpected role of religion and art in the classical understanding of economics. He then moves to an account of economic developments during the past four decades, exploring the dawn of our new information age, the growing virtuality of money and markets, and the complexity of the networks by which monetary value is now negotiated.

Devil is in the details : understanding the causes of policy specificity and ambiguity / Rachel VanSickle-Ward.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4945 .V36 2014
Publisher:


The level of detail in a given law can have dramatic consequences for how that law is interpreted and applied. In The Devil Is in the Details, Rachel VanSickle-Ward focuses on the dynamics of social policy construction in the United States in order to better understand why the wording of legislation can range from the specific to the ambiguous. When policies are high salience, the fissures produced by partisan discord, interest group diversity, and pluralistic executive branches promote ambiguous policy. When policies are lower profile, this relationship is more tenuous and, at times, inverted, with contention producing more policy detail. Put simply, on important and controversial legislation, ambiguity serves as a vehicle for compromise when key participants disagree over details. Moreover, fragmentation is a more powerful driver of ambiguity than limits in technical expertise or legislative capacity. This multi-method investigation is the first to measure statute specificity directly. VanSickle-Ward combines comprehensive content analysis of more than 250 health and welfare bills passed in 44 states in the 1990s and 2000s with in-depth interviews of policy-making elites.

Intimate associations : the law and culture of American families / J. Herbie DiFonzo and Ruth C. Stern.

Location: lax
Call #: KF505 .D54 2013
Publisher:


The rise in divorce, cohabitation, single parenthood and same-sex partnerships along with an increase in surrogacy, adoption and assisted reproductive technologies has led to many diverse configurations of families, or intimate associations. The authors show that children of married parents fare better than children in a household formed by cohabiting adults. This is not to condemn non-traditional families but to point out that society and the law do not adequately provide for their needs. In conclusion, they call for a legal system that can adapt to the continually changing reality of family life. Find out more (catalog link)

Broberg on the European Commission's jurisdiction to scrutinise mergers / Morten P. Broberg.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6467 .B76 2013
Publisher:


Since the EC Merger Regulation was adopted in 1989, merger control has become established as an important part of EC competition law so that today all major businesses and law firms are aware of the Commission's extensive powers in this field. Right from the beginning, the Regulation's scope has occupied a central role in many mergers taking place both inside and outside the European Community. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers provides the most thorough examination of the Commission's jurisdiction to examine mergers under the Regulation. Even though the Merger Regulation provides a detailed account of what mergers fall within the Commission's jurisdiction--and irrespective of the large number of cases that have now been decided by the Commission--the delimitation of jurisdiction continues to create significant problems. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers offers a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of all aspects of this delimitation. It provides valuable guidance to businesses, their legal advisors and competition law enforcers in the Commission as well as in the Member States. Find out more (catalog link)

EU agricultural law / Jens Hartig Danielsen.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6605 .D36 2013
Publisher:


The Common Agricultural Policy is one of the most developed of the common policies of the EU and has been a model for many of the general principles of EU Law. To date, discussion of the policy has centred on the political and financial problems that have arisen, rather than the legal aspectsof the policy. This book examines those legal aspects through the evolution of the CAP. It traces the legal transformation of the CAP from a market and price-driven policy towards its current emphasis on the multifunctionality of European agriculture and the development of a common food policy,incorporating food safety and quality, animal health and welfare and the protection of the environment.

Contract law minimalism : a formalist restatement of commercial contract law / Jonathan Morgan, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.

Location: lax
Call #: K840 .M677 2013
Publisher:


Commercial contract law is in every sense optional given the choice between legal systems and law and arbitration. Its 'doctrines' are in fact virtually all default rules. Contract Law Minimalism advances the thesis that commercial parties prefer a minimalist law that sets out to enforce what they have decided - but does nothing else. The limited capacity of the legal process is the key to this 'minimalist' stance. This book considers evidence that such minimalism is indeed what commercial parties choose to govern their transactions. Find out more (catalog link)

Fixing U.S. international taxation / Daniel N. Shaviro.

Location: lax
Call #: KF6499.I57 S53 2014
Publisher:


International tax rules, which determine how countries tax cross-border investment, are increasingly important with the rise of globalization, but the modern US rules, even more than those in most other countries, are widely recognized as dysfunctional. The existing debate over how to reform the US tax rules is stuck in a sterile dialectic, in which ostensibly the only permissible choices are worldwide or residence-based taxation of US companies with the allowance of foreigntax credits, versus outright exemption of the companies' foreign source income. In this book, Shaviro explains why neither of these solutions addresses the fundamental problem at hand, and he proposes a new reformulation of the existing framework from first principles.

Behind the multilateral trading system : legal indigenization and the WTO in comparative perspective / Xing Lijuan.

Location: lax
Call #: K4610 .X56 2014
Publisher:


Behind the Multilateral Trading System offers a novel perspective from which to view and understand the WTO regime and its participants. The central feature of that new perspective is the concept of legal indigenization. This term generally refers to the process or ideology in which domestic authorities make and implement international or domestic rules in a way appealing to their native features (especially legal traditions), as responses to globalization led by a defective global legal system. The book's core thesis is that the influence of the legal tradition and culture of a society or political system inevitably and fundamentally influences the ways in which WTO members propose multilateral trading rules and implement their WTO obligations--in ways that have not, until now, been adequately explored and explained in the extensive literature relating to international trade law.

Call #: KF537 .S73 2014
Publisher:


Critics of alimony claim it has no place in contemporary visions of marriage as a partnership of equals. But as Cynthia Lee Starnes argues in The Marriage Buyout, alimony is often the only practical tool for ensuring that divorce does not treat today's primary caregivers as if they were suckers. Her solution is to radically reconceptualize alimony as a marriage buyout.Starnes's buyouts draw on a partnership model of marriage that reinforces communal norms of marriage, providing a gender-neutral alternative to alimony that assumes equality in spousal contribution, responsibility, and right.

Wasting a crisis : why securities regulation fails / Paul G. Mahoney.

Location: lax
Call #: KF1070 .M34 2015
Publisher:


The recent financial crisis led to sweeping reforms that inspired countless references to the financial reforms of the New Deal. Comparable to the reforms of the New Deal in both scope and scale, the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, the main regulatory reform package introduced in the United States, also shared with New Deal reforms the assumption that the underlying cause of the crisis was misbehavior by securities market participants, exacerbated by lax regulatory oversight. With 'Wasting a Crisis', Paul G. Mahoney offers persuasive research to show that this now almost universally accepted narrative of market failure, broadly similar across financial crises, is formulated by political actors hoping to deflect blame from prior policy errors.
