Summary
  • This major new book is concerned with the conflict between the goals of justice and economic efficiency in the allocation of risk, especially risk pertaining to safety
  • The author approaches his subject from the premise that the market is central to liberal, political, moral, and legal theory. In the first part of the book, he rejects traditional "rational choice" liberalism in favor of the view that the market operates as a rational way of fostering stable relationships and institutions within communities of individuals with broadly divergent conceptions of the good. Markets are needed most where they are most difficult to create and sustain, however, and one way to understand contract law in liberal legal theory, according to Professor Coleman, is as an institution designed to reduce uncertainty and thereby make markets possible. Another target of this book is the prevalent view that tort law helps rectify market failures when transaction costs are too high to permit contracting. The author argues instead that tort law should be understood as a way of rectifying wrongful losses, not inefficient exchanges
