To attend, please e-mail May (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Guy (email@example.com) to obtain the link to our discussion group for tomorrow or to be added to our weekly mailing list. All are welcome!
Despite its ubiquity in economics and legal theory, the notion of economic efficiency is incoherent and thus does not provide an objective guide to policy or analysis. I am in the early stages of planning a book project in which I will write the lead chapter explaining why the efficiency concept is misunderstood and thus misused, and in the remaining chapters other scholars will explain how their fields of law should change once we stop treating efficiency as a meaningful concept. In this talk, I will explain in brief why efficiency has no fixed meaning and then explore with all of you what the other chapters of my planned book might cover (and who might write those chapters). Interested participants who want to read something in advance can focus on Parts II and V of this forthcoming article.
