The conservatives, the market, and the common law

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The common law - the law of contracts, torts, and property - is in the throes of a remarkable transformation. Many changes already have been adopted, and more are in process. The changes are radical and regressive, abandoning the progressive legal developments of the twentieth century, favoring the interests of big business, and animated by an ideology that is opposed to government acting in the public interest.
