    Views

    My early work was concerned with issues of urban economics, including local public sector economics and housing demand analysis. After attending Yale Law School, 1975-1976, my research shifted to the so-called ‘new law and economics’. Within this area, my principal interest is the economics of enforcement, broadly defined.

    For example, I am concerned with whether antitrust laws should be enforced by private individuals using the treble damage remedy or by public regulators using fines and imprisonment as threats. Similar questions arise in the control of pollution, product quality, and tax evasion, other substantive areas of interest to me. Much of my research in this area is summarised in a nontechnical way in my textbook, An Introduction to Law and Economics.
