Tort Reform by Contract

In this concise, insightful book, Emory professor Paul Rubin proposes to reform the American tort system by a return to the law of contract. Rubin points to ways in which contractual agreements could offer alternative guidelines for both parties to follow, specifically by permitting parties involved in voluntary transactions�manufacturers and consumers, doctors and patients, employers and employees�to specify set contractual damages that would be binding in future litigation.

Paul H. Rubin, Professor of Economics, Emory University (AEI Press, 1993)
