Economic efficiency of the common law of torts
Richard S. Markovits, a professor at the University of Texas Law School, has recently published an interesting but academically dense article, “Liberalism and Tort Law: On the Content and Economic Efficiency of a Liberal Common Law of Torts.” While I wish he hadn’t used the political perjorative “L word” (“liberal”), I’ll assume he intended the first dictionary definition: “Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.” (I don’t normally spend time perusing such theoretical articles, but noticed this one in abstract on the Legal Theory Blog.)
