Progressive Law and Economics book

A fabulous collection of essays from a time when what now appears as “law and economics” or neoliberalism was beginning to take over:   The Chicago School of Political Economy, edited by Warren J. Samuels (Transaction Publishers, originally 1976 but reprinted with some new material in 1993).  From Warren Samuels’ conclusion:  “…the real world is an arena *not* fundamentally of intervention versus nonintervention (although such *is* the semantics of policy) but of working out alternative uses of government.  The Chicago School doctrine reflects, takes advantage of, and reinforces the long-standing practice of identifying business system use of government as nonintervention or “minimal” government, and all other uses as intervention.”
