This paper is far less ambitious than its title might suggest. It would be impossible to offer a comprehensive and critical survey of law-and-economics scholarship in a single short essay. My objective here is simply to develop some broad themes in an effort to provide some perspective on the law-and-economics literature in general and to stimulate further thought and discussion.
