4 economic growth. We will first explore what factors distinguish modern economic growth from previous episodes of national wealth in human history. We will then seek to understand why modern growth began in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands in the early 19th century, spread to the rest of Western Europe, North American, and Japan, and then took much longer to reach other parts of the world. We will be particularly interested to explain why certain parts of the world appear to have been very late to begin the process of modern growth. Then we will turn our attention to various theories of wealth and poverty among nations. Of particular interest will be recent theories that identify a central role for the rule of law and particular substantive legal doctrines in property, contract, the law of business associations, and other areas in fostering economic growth. We will conclude with case studies of the Arab countries, China, and India. Behavioural Law and Economics JUNE DR. AVISHALOM TOR 9 AM 2 PM UNIVERSITY OF HAMBURG Avishalom Tor is currently a Visiting Professor of Law at Fordham Law School (Spring 2011) and a Senior Lecturer and Co-Director of the Forum for Law and Markets at the University of Haifa Faculty of Law.

He also worked for several years as an attorney advisor and consultant for the Federal Trade Commission and serves as the Secretary of the European Association of Law and Economics. This class will grapple with a variety of current legal and policy debates regarding the role of the state in regulating financial and other markets, both international and domestic. Specific attention will be given to the limits and failures of markets on the one hand and of regulatory interventions that seek to correct these failures on the other, using the recent world financial crisis and the responses to it in Europe and the U.S. as one of our focal themes. We will draw on legal, economic, and psychological scholarship and empirical evidence to examine interactions among consumers, firms, and regulators. Our analysis will address the function of law and regulation in financial markets, corporate governance, competition, consumer protection, and more.

Three justifications for the state are next examined to provide public goods, correct externalities, and redistribution. The properties of the simple majority rule are nest explored. The course closes with a comparison of two- and multi-party systems of representation. Basic Econometrics JULY PROF.
