Property Rules, Liability Rules, and Inalienability: One View of the Cathedral (with A. Douglas Melamed), 85 Harvard Law Review 1089 (1972)
Professor Calabresi and Mr. Melamed develop a framework for legal analysis which they believe serves to integrate various legal relationships which are traditionally analyzed in separate subject areas such as Property and Torts. By using their model to suggest solutions to the pollution problem that have been overlooked by writers in the field, and by applying the model to the question of criminal sanctions, they demonstrate the utility of such an integrated approach.
