The book presents a unique combination of research papers, ranging from business-commercial law to economic analysis of legislation covering various contemporary socio-economic issues. The unique blend of diverse topics in the books ensures that the readers acquire a holistic understanding and much-needed knowledge about the theoretical and practical foundations of law and economics. Law and Economics tools align the conflicting interests such that the aggregate surpluses of the bargains maximize while ensuring that all stakeholders gain from the given transaction. The economic analysis enables one to expound on the behaviour of markets, institutions, government, bureaucrats, legislatures and even individuals under various socio-economic and legal constraints through the tools of statistics and mathematics which provide concrete policy recommendations or solutions to a given problem. The book aims to provide an innovative perspective to the readers of contemporary policy-legal issues through an economic analysis.
