The Economics of Product Safety and Imperfect Information
In an earlier article in the Bell Journal, Walter Oi analyzed the economics of product safety. His primary emphasis was on a full information model. However, since product safety is only a problem if consumer information is inadequate, policy implications of a full information analysis are suspect. This paper stresses the importance of treating product bans and liability rules as part of the consumer's information processing system.
