Economic Reasoning and Judicial Review
This article considers the use of the economics in the law in the context of the US Supreme Court, of which the author is one of the Justices. It focuses on three cases where he has dissented, the first considering whether the Environmental Protection Agency may consider economic costs, the second whether a bright line rule or a rule of reason should apply to resale price maintenance and the third on whether copyright protection should be extended by a further 20 years.
