Lawless capitalism : the subprime crisis and the case for an economic rule of law / Steven A. Ramirez.

Location: lax
Call #: HB3717 2008 .R36 2013
Publisher: New York University Press,


The subprime mortgage crisis has been blamed on many: the Bush Administration, Bernie Madoff, the financial industry, overzealous housing developers. Yet little scrutiny has been placed on the American legal system as a whole, even though parts of that system, such as the laws that regulate high-risk lending, have been dissected to bits and pieces. In this innovative and exhaustive study, Steven A. Ramirez posits that the subprime mortgage crisis, as well as the global macroeconomic catastrophe it spawned, is traceable to a gross failure of law. The rule of law must appropriately channel and constrain the exercise of economic and political power. Used effectively, it ensures that economic opportunity isn't limited to a small group of elites that enjoy growth at the expense of many, particularly those in vulnerable economic situations. In Lawless Capitalism, Ramirez calls for the rule of law to displace crony capitalism. Only through the rule of law, he argues, can capitalism be reconstructed. Find out more (catalog link)

Nonprofit organizations and the intellectual commons / Jyh-An Lee.

Location: lax
Call #: K1401 .L44 2012
Publisher: Edward Elgar,


Over the past twenty years, a number of nonprofit organizations (NPOs), such as Creative Commons, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Free Software Foundation have laid essential building blocks for intellectual-commons as a social movement. Through a detailed description of these NPOs and a series of in-depth interviews with their officials, this book demonstrates that NPOs have provided the social structures that are necessary to support the production of intellectual commons. By illustrating NPOs' role in shaping the commons realm, this book provides a new lens through which to understand the intellectual-commons environment. Protecting intellectual commons has been one of the most important goals of recent innovation and information policies. This book focuses on the NPOs that occupy an increasingly critical and visible position in the intellectual-commons environment in recent years. This detailed study will appeal to academics in intellectual property and internet law, nonprofit organizations, academics and professionals, and those involved in the Free Culture and Open Source Software Movement.

Fight over digital rights : the politics of copyright and technology / Bill D. Herman.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3024.E44 H47 2013
Publisher: Cambridge University Press,


In the political fight over copyright, Internet advocacy has reshaped the playing field. This was shown most dramatically in the 2012 "SOPA blackout," when the largest online protest in history stopped two copyright bills in their tracks. For those not already familiar with the debate, this protest seemingly came out of nowhere yet was the culmination of an intellectual and political evolution more than a decade in the making. This book examines the debate over digital copyright, from the late 1980s through early 2012, and the new tools of political communication involved in the advocacy around the issue. Drawing on methods from legal studies, political science, and communications, it explores the rise of a coalition seeking more limited copyright, as well as how these early-adopting, technology-savvy policy advocates used online communication to shock the world. It compares key bills, congressional debates, and offline and online media coverage using quantitative and qualitative methods to create a rigorous study for researchers that is also accessible to a general audience.

Latin American company law.

Location: lacom
Call #: KG320 .L38 2013
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press,


The two volumes of Latin American Company Law aim to create a better understanding of Latin America's company law as a tool for harnessing development capital, local and foreign, and for developing a broader class of traders, investors, lenders and corporate managers. In pursuing these goals, the authors and editors share a belief in a comparative analysis that the National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade (NLCIFT) refers to as 'contextual': legal institutions are examined not only in light of the legal system to which they belong but also as a product of their normative purposes and socio-economic environment. Thus, prospective investors in and lenders to Latin America as well as their legal and economic advisors will learn about the legal and cultural or institutional obstacles to capital formation and financing, especially at the bottom of the economic pyramid.

Law and fair work in China / Sean Cooney, Sarah Biddulph and Ying Zhu.

Location: lacom
Call #: KNQ1270 .C66 2013
Publisher: Routledge,


China’s economic reforms have brought the country both major international clout and widespread domestic prosperity. At the same time, the reforms have led to significant social upheaval, particularly manifest in labour relations. Each year, several hundred thousand disputes break out over working conditions, many of them violent, and the Chinese state has responded with both legal and political strategies. This book investigates how Chinese governments have used law, and other forms of regulation, to govern working conditions and combat labour disputes. Starting from its beginnings in the Republican period the book traces the evolution of the law of work in modern China right up to the reforms of the present day. It goes on to consider the structure of Chinese work law, drawing on both Chinese and Western scholarship to provide new insights into its unique features and assess where the law is innovative and where it is stagnant and unresponsive. Finally, the authors explore the various legal and extra-legal techniques successive Chinese governments have adopted to enforce employment law and the responses of firms, workers and organizations to these practices.

Law and society in Korea / edited by Hyunah Yang.

Location: lacom
Call #: KPA465 .L39 2013
Publisher: Edward Elgar,


This book sets out a panoramic view of law and society studies in South Korea, considering the factors that have made this post-colonial war-torn country economically and politically successful. The contributors examine societal and historical conditions that are reflected in (or that were shaped by) the law, through a variety of lenses; including law and development, law and politics, colonialism and gender, past wrongdoings, public interest lawyering, and judicial reform. In dismantling the historical specificity of the way in which Korea studies are universally framed the contributions provide novel views, theories and information about South Korean law and society. Incorporating various perspectives and methodologies, and demonstrating a finely crafted application of general theory to specific issues, this compendium will prove insightful to law scholars and researchers looking to widen their perspective and broaden their knowledge on law and society in Korea.

Legal reform and business contracts in developing economies : trust, culture, and law in Dakar / Julie Paquin.

Location: lacom
Call #: KTG920 .P37 2012
Publisher: Ashgate Pub.,


This book examines the prospects for business law reform to drive economic development in developing countries. It argues that, despite statements to the contrary, cultural factors and other local conditions in developing countries are not properly taken into account in current business law reform programs. Utilizing the city of Dakar as an example, this book investigates the consequences of this lack of fit between local needs and transplanted legal models by examining the potential and actual impact of the OHADA program of law reform on local business practices. Focusing on how managers make decisions and apply appropriate norms in routine business operations, the book documents how contractual disputes arise and are solved in Dakar and the role played by formal law in these processes. By examining imported law from the point of view of the end-users of legal reforms, the book reveals the complex relationship between formal law, local cultural norms and the activities of SMEs operating in developing economies, and calls for a reconsideration of current law and development theory as well as the role of contract law in business decisions.

Location: lax
Call #: QA76.76.C69 A35 2011
Publisher: MIT Press,


Government agencies and public organizations often consider adopting open source software (OSS) for reasons of transparency, cost, citizen access, and greater efficiency in communication and delivering services.

The authors analyze the cases and develop an overarching, conceptual framework to clarify the various enablers and inhibitors of OSS adoption in the public sector. The book provides a useful resource for policymakers, practitioners, and academics.The five cases of OSS adoption include a hospital in Ireland; an IT consortium serving all the municipalities of the province of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy; schools and public offices in the Extremadura region of Spain; the Massachusetts state government's open standards policy in the United States; and the ICT department of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. The book provides a comparative analysis of these cases around the issues of motivation, strategies, technologies, economic and social aspects, and the implications for theory and practice.

Intellectual property rights : protections and enforcement / Harold E. Price and Linda S. Cox, editors.

Location: lax
Call #: KF2979 .I584 2012
Publisher: Nova Science,


Intellectual property rights (IPR) traditionally have been matters of national concern. Individual nation states have developed IPR regimes reflecting their domestic needs and priorities. Over time, intellectual property protection and enforcement have come to the forefront as a key international trade issue for the United States, figuring prominently in the multilateral trade policy arena and in regional and bilateral U.S. free trade agreements (FTAs). This book reflects the Administration's resolve to encourage and maintain adequate and effective IPR protection and enforcement world-wide. It identifies a wide range of concerns, including troubling "indigenous innovation" policies that may unfairly disadvantage U.S. rights holders in China, the continuing challenges of copyright piracy over the Internet in countries such as Canada, Italy, and Russia, and other ongoing, systemic IPR enforcement issues presented in many trading partners around the world.

Revisiting the contracts scholarship of Stewart Macaulay : on the empirical and the lyrical / edited by Jean Braucher, John Kidwell and William C. Whitford.

Location: lax
Call #: K840.A6 R48 2013
Publisher: Hart,


This book contains papers, prepared for a conference held at the Wisconsin Law School in 2011, in honor the work of Stewart Macaulay, one of the most famous contracts scholars of his generation. Macaulay has been writing about contracts and contract law for over 50 years, with the 1960s being particularly productive years for Macaulay, when he introduced many novel ideas into the scholarly world. Macaulay's foundational work, for what is now called relational contract theory, was published during this period. He is also known for his use of empirical research and interdisciplinary theories which illuminate our knowledge of contracting practices. The papers reflect, in diverse ways, on the subsequent influence and the contemporary relevance of Stewart Macaulay's work. All the contributors are important contracts scholars in their own right. The book also reproduces Macaulay's most cited paper: Non-Contractual Relations in Business. Find out more (catalog link)

Baseball trust : a history of baseball's antitrust exemption / Stuart Banner.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3989 .B36 2013
Publisher: Oxford University Press,


In The Baseball Trust, legal historian Stuart Banner illuminates the series of court rulings that resulted in one of the most curious features of our legal system-baseball's exemption from antitrust law. A serious baseball fan, Banner provides a thoroughly entertaining history of the game as seen through the prism of an extraordinary series of courtroom battles, ranging from 1890 to the present. The book looks at such pivotal cases as the 1922 Supreme Court case which held that federal antitrust laws did not apply to baseball; the 1972 Flood v. Kuhn decision that declared that baseball is exempt even from state antitrust laws; and several cases from the 1950s, one involving boxing and the other football, that made clear that the exemption is only for baseball, not for sports in general.

Unfair to genius : the strange and litigious career of Ira B. Arnstein / Gary A. Rosen.

Location: lax
Call #: KF228.A76 R67 2012
Publisher: Oxford University Press,


The long and tortured career of Ira B. Arnstein, "the unrivaled king of copyright infringement plaintiffs," opens a curious window into the evolution of copyright law in the United States. As Gary A. Rosen shows in this frequently funny and always entertaining history, the litigious Arnstein was a trenchant observer and most improbable participant in the transformation of not just copyright, but of American popular music itself. A musical prodigy in the late nineteenth century, Arnstein performed as a boy soprano at the famous 1893 "White City" exhibition in Chicago. He grew up to be a composer of moderate accomplishment, but by the mid-1920s his fortunes had reversed in the face of changing tastes and times. Embittered and confused, he became convinced that he was the victim of a conspiracy to steal his music and set out on a three-decade-long campaign to prove it, suing most of the major players in the popular music industry of his day. Although Arnstein never won a case, Rosen shows that the decisions rendered ultimately defined some of the basic parameters of copyright law. Find out more (catalog link)

Judicial politics of economic integration : the Andean Court as an engine of development / Osvaldo Saldias.

Location: lacom
Call #: KG736.A5 S24 2014
Publisher:


The Judicial Politics of Economic Integration analyses development strategies and regional integration in the Andean Community (the former Andean Pact) of Latin American nations; focusing on the establishment of the Andean Court of Justice and its case law, as well as the intellectual underpinnings that made such an impressive reform possible. The court is a transplant taken from the European integration process, and it materializes the visions, expectations, and dreams of the transnational development movement of "integration through law". The book discusses the outcomes of the Court in the light of the debates about judicial reform in the process of development and regional integration. Although it clearly confirms several earlier claims that "one size does not fit all", it provides new evidence that legal reform is not futile. On the contrary, the book argues, if driven reflexively it can be a considerable contribution to the creation of capabilities and improvement of a democratic rule of law.

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)

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.

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.

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.
