Law, Capitalism, and the Future, 28 University of Florida Law Review 309 (1976)


Departing from the usual style of a law review article, the following manuscript not only invites but requires extensive participation by the reader in analyzing the function of the law in relation to capitalism. The author adopts an unorthodox technique and weaves together seemingly unrelated ideas. For example, by interjecting a lengthy quote from a 1964 Supreme Court decision, the author bids the reader to determine whether the law can serve "as a successful control device" in the face of the increasing internationalization of capitalism. Moreover, the web of ideas that the author spins does not suggest facile distinctions or conclusions. From the confusing and complex bombardment of ideas, analogies, and theories, the reader hopefully will discover perceptions worthy of the challenge.
