Conceptual foundations: a bird’s-eye view
Jonathan Baron and Tess Wilkinson-Ryan outline the field's conceptual foundations. They concentrate on the behavioral concepts imported into the field from psychology and experimental economics, and survey the normative models, descriptive theories, and prescriptive approaches featured in behavorial law and economics research. They endeavor to point out common themes in the research in an effort to tie together various bunches of findings and counter the criticism that the field lacks the cohesion of standard law and economics.
