  • Introduction

    This special issue has the objective to promote discussions and reflections related with the economic analysis of law, especially private law. The economic analysis of law applies the tools of microeconomic theory to the analysis of legal rules and institutions with the objective to offer distinctive, often radical, answers to the questions addressed by legal theory. This discipline also seeks to answer two basic questions about legal rules. 1. What are the effects of legal rules on the behavior of relevant actors? 2. Are these effects of legal rules socially desirable? In summary, the economic analysis of law studies the effectiveness of the current provisions in the legal system under study. In this way, this special issue we will aim to discuss the economic analysis of law, especially private law, such as contract law, commercial law, consumer law, competence law, tort law, among others, in different countries around the globe, allowing the reader and other scholars to compare the effects of legal rules in different societies. In general, this special issue must reveal works that answer the following questions: “What are the effects of legal rules on the behavior of relevant actors?” and “Are this effects of legal rules socially desirable?”.
