1990s–2000s

In 1999, then-President Hugo Sonnenschein announced plans to relax the University's famed core curriculum, reducing the number of required courses from 21 to 15. When The New York TimesThe Economist, and other major news outlets picked up this story, the University became the focal point of a national debate on education. The changes were ultimately implemented, but the controversy played a role in Sonnenschein's decision to resign in 2000.[33]Packard Bell NEW90 Laptop Keyboard In the past decade, the University began a number of multi-million dollar expansion projects. In 2008, the University of Chicago announced plans to establish the Milton Friedman Institute which attracted both support and controversy from faculty members and students.[34][35][36][37][38] The institute will cost around $200 million and occupy the buildings of the Chicago Theological Seminary. Packard Bell Easynote TK37 Laptop Keyboard During the same year, investor David G. Booth donated $300 million to the University's Booth School of Business, which is the largest gift in the University's history and the largest gift ever to any business school.[39] In 2009, planning or construction on several new buildings, half of which cost $100 million or more, was underway.[40]  DELL 5HK36 Laptop Keyboard A recent[when?] two-billion dollar campaign has brought substantial expansion to the campus, including the unveiling of the Max Palevsky Residential Commons, the South Campus Residence Hall, the Gerald Ratner Athletics Center, a new hospital, and a new science building.

DELL V100830AS1 Laptop Keyboard As soon as Schwarzenegger was elected governor, Willie Brown said he would start a drive to recall the governor. Schwarzenegger was equally entrenched in what he considered to be his mandate in cleaning up gridlock. Building on a catchphrase from the sketch "Hans and Franz" from Saturday Night Live (which partly parodied his bodybuilding career), Schwarzenegger called the Democratic State politicians "girlie men".[68] Packard Bell NEW95 Laptop Keyboard Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger's early victories included repealing an unpopular increase in the vehicle registration fee as well as preventing driver's licenses being given out to illegal immigrants, but later he began to feel the backlash when powerful state unions began to oppose his various initiatives. Key among his reckoning with political realities was a special election he called in November 2005, TOSHIBA Satellite Pro A120 Series Laptop Keyboard in which four ballot measures he sponsored were defeated. Schwarzenegger accepted personal responsibility for the defeats and vowed to continue to seek consensus for the people of California. He would later comment that "no one could win if the opposition raised 160 million dollars to defeat you".Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger then went against the advice of fellow Republican strategists and appointed a Democrat, Susan Kennedy, as his Chief of Staff. Schwarzenegger gradually moved towards a more politically moderate position, determined to build a winning legacy with only a short time to go until the next gubernatorial election. FUJITSU Amilo Mini Ui 3520 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger ran for re-election against Democrat Phil Angelides, the California State Treasurer, in the 2006 elections, held on November 7, 2006. Despite a poor year nationally for the Republican party, Schwarzenegger won re-election with 56.0% of the vote compared with 38.9% for Angelides, a margin of well over one million votes.[69] ASUS F3Sc Laptop Keyboard In recent years, many commentators have seen Schwarzenegger as moving away from the right and towards the center of the political spectrum. After hearing a speech by Schwarzenegger at the 2006 Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast, San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom said that, "[H]e's becoming a Democrat [... H]e's running back, not even to the center. I would say center-left".HP G62-b25SA Laptop Keyboard It was rumored that Schwarzenegger might run for the United States Senate in 2010, as his governorship would be term-limited by that time. This turned out to be false.[70][71] Wendy Leigh, who wrote an unofficial biography on Schwarzenegger, claims he plotted his political rise from an early age using the movie business and bodybuilding as building blocks to escape a depressing home.[9IBM Lenovo ThinkPad R51e 1843 Laptop Keyboard ] Leigh portrays Schwarzenegger as obsessed with power and quotes him as saying, "I wanted to be part of the small percentage of people who were leaders, not the large mass of followers. I think it is because I saw leaders use 100% of their potential –I was always fascinated by people in control of other people."[9]IBM Lenovo ThinkPad R51 1829 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger has said that it was never his intention to enter politics, but he says, "I married into a political family. You get together with them and you hear about policy, about reaching out to help people. I was exposed to the idea of being a public servant and Eunice and Sargent Shriver became my heroes."[23] Eunice Kennedy Shriver was sister of John F. SAMSUNG NP-N102-JA01DX Laptop Keyboard Kennedy, and mother-in-law to Schwarzenegger; Sargent Shriver is husband to Eunice and father-in-law to Schwarzenegger. He cannot run for president as he is not a natural born citizen of the United States. In The Simpsons Movie (2007), he is portrayed as the President, and in the Sylvester Stallone movie, Demolition Man (1993, ten years before his first run for political office), it is revealed that a constitutional amendment passed which allowed Schwarzenegger to run for President.[citation needed] HP Pavilion dv6-2113sa Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger is a dual Austria/United States citizen.[72] He holds Austrian citizenship by birth and has held U.S. citizenship since becoming naturalized in 1983.

Giuliani dropped out of the Presidential race on January 30, 2008, largely because of a poor showing in Florida, SONY VAIO VGN-NW240F Laptop Keyboard and endorsed McCain. Later that night, Schwarzenegger was in the audience at a Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. The following day, he endorsed McCain, joking, "It's Rudy's fault!" (in reference to his friendships with both candidates and that he could not make up his mind). Schwarzenegger's endorsement was thought to be a boost for Senator McCain's campaign; both spoke about their concerns for the environment and economy.[75]HP Probook 4710S Laptop Keyboard In its April 2010 report, Progressive ethics watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington named Schwarzenegger one of 11 "worst governors" in the United States because of various ethics issues throughout Schwarzenegger's term as governor.[76][77]HP Pavilion DV6-1002tx Laptop Keyboard TOSHIBA P205-S6347 Laptop Keyboard Governor Schwarzenegger played a significant role in opposing Proposition 66, a proposed amendment of the Californian Three Strikes Law, in November 2004.

In the last week before the ballot, Schwarzenegger launched an intensive campaign[78] against Proposition 66.[79] He stated that "it would release 26,000 dangerous criminals and rapists".DELL Latitude D830 Laptop Keyboard

Allegations of sexual misconduct

During his initial campaign for governor, allegations of sexual and personal misconduct were raised against Schwarzenegger, dubbed "Gropegate".[80] Within the last five days before the election, news reports appeared in the Los Angeles Timesrecounting allegations of sexual misconduct from several individual women, six of whom eventually came forward with their personal stories.[81]IBM Lenovo ThinkPad X300 Laptop Keyboard Three of the women claimed he had grabbed their breasts, a fourth said he placed his hand under her skirt on her buttock. A fifth woman claimed Schwarzenegger tried to take off her bathing suit in a hotel elevator, and the last said he pulled her onto his lap and asked her about a sex act.[80]DELL V100830AS1 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger admitted that he has "behaved badly sometimes" and apologized, but also stated that "a lot of [what] you see in the stories is not true". This came after an interview in adult magazine Oui from 1977 surfaced, in which Schwarzenegger discussed attending sexual orgies and using substances such as marijuana.[82]HP 550 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger is shown smoking a marijuana joint after winning Mr. Olympia in the 1975 documentary film Pumping Iron. In an interview with GQ magazine in October 2007, Schwarzenegger said, "[Marijuana] is not a drug. It's a leaf. My drug was pumping iron, trust me."[83] His spokesperson later said the comment was meant to be a joke.[83]Compaq Presario CQ71-200 Series Laptop Keyboard British television personality Anna Richardson settled a libel lawsuit in August 2006 against Schwarzenegger, his top aide, Sean Walsh, and his publicist, Sheryl Main.[84] Compaq Presario CQ71-250SB Laptop Keyboard A joint statement read: "The parties are content to put this matter behind them and are pleased that this legal dispute has now been settled."[84] Richardson claimed they tried to tarnish her reputation by dismissing her allegations that Schwarzenegger touched her breast during a press event for The 6th Day in London.[85] She claimed Walsh and Main libeled her in a Los Angeles Times article when they contended she encouraged his behavior.[84] HP 640208-001 Laptop Keyboard

Citizenship

In 2005, Peter Pilz, from the Austrian Green Party, demanded that parliament revoke Schwarzenegger's Austrian citizenship. This demand was based on Article 33 of the Austrian Citizenship Act that states: A citizen, who is in the public service of a foreign country, shall be deprived of his citizenship, if he heavily damages the reputation or the interests of the Austrian Republic.[72] SONY VAIO VGN-FS742/W Laptop Keyboard Pilz claimed that Schwarzenegger's actions in support of the death penalty (prohibited in Austria under Protocol 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights) had indeed done damage to Austria's reputation. Schwarzenegger explained his actions by referring to the fact that his only duty as Governor of California was to prevent an error in the judicial system. APPLE Macbook 13 Inch Laptop Keyboard

Marital separation

On May 9, 2011, Shriver and Schwarzenegger separated after 25 years of marriage, with Shriver moving out of the couple's Brentwood mansion.[111][112][113] On May 16, 2011, the Los Angeles Times revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a son more than fourteen years earlier with an employee in their household, Mildred Patricia 'Patty' Baena.[114][115][116] "HP Pavilion dv6-2111sa Laptop Keyboard After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger said in a statement issued to The Times. In the statement, Schwarzenegger did not mention that he had confessed to his wife only after Shriver had confronted him with the information, which she had done after confirming with the housekeeper what she had suspected about the child.[117]Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Laptop Keyboard Fifty-year-old Baena, of Guatemalan origin, was employed by the family for 20 years and retired in January.[118] The pregnant Baena was working in the home while Shriver was pregnant with the youngest of the couple’s four children.[119] HP Pavilion dv6-3125sa Laptop Keyboard Baena's son with Schwarzenegger, Joseph,[120] was born on October 2, 1997;[121]Shriver gave birth to Christopher on September 27, 1997.[122] Schwarzenegger found ways to spend time with this child: in one instance, in 1998, Shriver and Schwarzenegger's children unexpectedly accompanied Schwarzenegger to the lovechild's baptism;[123] DELL Latitude 131L Laptop Keyboard and he was photographed teaching the boy how to play golf and swinging him playfully above his head.[123] Despite Schwarzenegger's interactions with the child, the boy was never told that Schwarzenegger was his father, and he was unaware of the fact until it was revealed by the press.[124] Schwarzenegger has taken financial responsibility for the child "from the start and continued to provide support."[125] ASUS X53K Laptop Keyboard KNX 1070 radio reported that he bought a new, four-bedroom house, with a pool, in Bakersfield, about 112 miles (180 km) north of Los Angeles, in 2010 for Baena and their son.[126] Baena separated from her husband, Rogelio, in 1997, a few months after Joseph's birth, and divorced him in 2008.[127] Baena's ex-husband says that the child's birth certificate was falsified and that he plans to sue Schwarzenegger and his ex-wife for engaging in conspiracy to falsify a public document, a serious crime in California.[128]lENOVO IdeaPad G555 Laptop Keyboard Schwarzenegger has consulted an attorney, Bob Kaufman. Kaufman has earlier handled divorce cases for celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.[129][130] Schwarzenegger will keep the Brentwood home as part of their divorce settlement and Shriver has purchased a new home nearby so that the children may travel easily between their parents' homes.  SONY VAIO VGN-FS315B Laptop Keyboard They will share custody of the two minor children.[131] Schwarzenegger came under fire after the initial petition did not include spousal support and a reimbursement of attorney's fees.[59] However, he claims this was not intentional and that he signed the initial documents without having properly read them.[59] Schwarzenegger has filed amended divorce papers remedying this.[59][132]HP G42-381TX Laptop Keyboard In the aftermath of Schwarzenegger's infidelity scandal, actress Brigitte Nielsen came forward and stated that she too had an affair with Schwarzenegger while he was in a relationship with Shriver,[133] saying, "Maybe I wouldn't have got into it if he said 'I'm going to marry Maria' and this is dead serious, but he didn't, and our affair carried on."[133]DELL MU194 Laptop Keyboard Behavioralism (or behaviouralism) is an approach in political science, which emerged in the 1930s in the United States. It represents a sharp break from previous political science. This is because it emphasized an objective, quantified approach to explain and predict political behavior.[1][2] It is associated with the rise of the behavioral sciences, modeled after the natural sciences.[3] This means that behavioralism tries to explain behavior with an unbiased, neutral point of view. SONY VAIO VGN-AW17GU Laptop Keyboard Behavioralism seeks to examine the behavior, actions, and acts of individuals – rather than the characteristics of institutions such as legislatures, executives, and judiciaries[4] – and groups in different social settings and explain this behavior as it relates to the political system.[5]ACER ZU2 Laptop Keyboard Origins Following the Second World War through until the 1960s, behavioralism was a source of controversy. It was the site of discussion between traditionalist and new emerging approaches to political science.[6] The origins of behavioralism is often attributed to the work of University of Chicago professor Charles Merriam, who emphasized the importance of examining political behavior of individuals and groups rather than only considering how they abide by legal or formal rules.[7]TOSHIBA Satellite Pro A120 Series Laptop Keyboard Prior to the "behavioralist revolution", political science being a science at all was disputed.[8] Critics saw the study of politics as being primarily qualitative and normative, and claimed that it lacked a scientific method necessary to be deemed a science.[9] SONY VAIO VPC-F12 Laptop Keyboard Behavioralists used strict methodology and empirical research to validate their study as a social science.[10] The behavioralist approach was innovative because it changed the attitude of the purpose of inquiry. It moved toward research that was supported by verifiable facts.[11] During its rise in popularity in the 1960s and 70s, behavioralism challenged the realist and liberal approaches, which the behavioralists called "traditionalism", and other studies of political behavior that was not based on fact.  SAMSUNG NP-N102-JA01DX Laptop Keyboard To understand political behavior, behavioralism uses the following methods: sampling, interviewing, scoring and scaling and statistical analysis.[12] Behavioralism studies how individuals behave in group positions realistically rather than how they should behave. For example, a study of the United States Congress might include a consideration of how members of Congress behave in their positions.[7] The subject of interest is the how Congress becomes an "arena of actions" and the surrounding formal and informal spheres of power.[7]TOSHIBA Satellite L775D-S7332 Laptop Keyboard David Easton was the first to differentiate behavioralism from behaviorism in the 1950s.[13] In the early 1940s, behaviorism itself was referred to as a behavioral science and later referred to as behaviorism. However, Easton sought to differentiate between the two disciplines:[14]SAMSUNG NP-N150-JP01 Laptop Keyboard Behavioralism was not a clearly defined movement for those who were thought to be behavioralists. It was more clearly definable by those who were opposed to it, because they were describing it in terms of the things within the newer trends that they found objectionable. So some would define behavioralism as an attempt to apply the methods of natural sciences to human behavior. Others would define it as an excessive emphasis upon quantification. Others as individualistic reductionism. From the inside, the practitioners were of different minds as what it was that constituted behavioralism. [...] And few of us were in agreement.[15]HP 550 Laptop Keyboard With this in mind, behavioralism resisted a single definition. Dwight Waldo emphasized that behavioralism itself is unclear, calling it "complicated" and "obscure."[16] Easton agreed, stating, "every man puts his own emphasis and thereby becomes his own behavioralist" and attempts to completely define behavioralism are fruitless.[17] From the beginning, behavioralism was a political, not a scientific concept.  SONY VAIO VGN-CR520E Laptop Keyboard Moreover, since behavioralism is not a research tradition, but a political movement, definitions of behavioralism follow what behavioralists wanted.[14] Therefore, most introductions to the subject emphasize value-free research. This is evidenced by Easton's eight "intellectual foundation stones" of behavioralism:[18][19]Compaq Presario CQ71-411EZ Laptop Keyboard The approach has come under fire from both conservatives and radicals for the purported value-neutrality. Conservatives see the distinction between values and facts as a way of undermining the possibility of political philosophy.[22] Neal Riemer believes behavioralism dismisses "the task of ethical recommendation"[23]because behavioralists believe "truth or falsity of values (democracy, equality, and freedom, etc.) cannot be established scientifically and are beyond the scope of legitimate inquiry."[24]HP Envy 15 Laptop Keyboard Christian Bay believed behavioralism was a pseudopolitical science and that it did not represent "genuine" political research.[23] Bay objected to empirical consideration taking precedence over normative and moral examination of politics.[23]DELL Latitude D830 Laptop Keyboard Behavioralism initially represented a movement away from "naive empiricism", but has been criticized as an approach has been criticized for "naive scientism".[25] Additionally, radical critics believe that the separation of fact from value makes the empirical study of politics impossible.[22]SONY VAIO VGN-FS742/W Laptop Keyboard

Early years

Mark, born in 1858 in Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania, was the son of Cyrus and Rebecca (Strohm) Mark. His earliest paternal ancestor in the United States was William Killian Mark, who moved with his brothers from Switzerland to Lebanon County Pennsylvania in 1735.[2]HP G61-450EE Laptop Keyboard DELL 1R28D Laptop Keyboard Clayton moved to Chicago with his family in 1872. He was educated in the public schools of Pennsylvania and Illinois, and stopped his formal education after completing seventh grade at Brown School in Chicago.[3][4] SONY VAIO VGN-NR21Z/S Laptop Keyboard Mark’s family relocated to Carroll, Iowa in 1936 after Mark’s father’s dry goods business burned down. Cyrus Marks subsequently established another dry goods business in Carroll.[5] However, Clayton stayed in Chicago to begin his career as a file clerk for Chicago Malleable Iron Co. in 1876, where he advanced to secretary, and vice-president, and was on the Board of Directors until his death.[3][6]IBM Lenovo Thinkpad X201 Laptop Keyboard Mark founded The Mark Manufacturing Company in 1888 as a co-partnership with his father Cyrus Mark.[5] The company initially manufactured well points, small castings used in the construction of wells. This business was later expanded to include the manufacture of steel pipe. In 1900, he built a pipe mill in Evanston, IL, bought another in Ohio in 1901, a zinc mining company in 1906, and in 1916 Mark built a steel mill in Indiana Harbor to supply his own requirements for steel.[7]SONY VAIO VGN-AW17GU Laptop Keyboard In 1917, Mark began construction of a planned worker community “Marktown” to house the workers of his steel mill in Indiana Harbor, East Chicago, although it was never completed. Marktown was designed to house 8,000 employees in 200 houses, and the plans included a recreation building, both elementary and high schools, a post office, Lenovo Thinkpad X220 Laptop Keyboard a movie theatre, and a recreational park with tennis courts. In contrast to the neighboring planned worker community developed by thePullman Company in which workers were not allowed to own their homes, the residents of Marktown were to have the opportunity to either rent or purchase their homes.[8][9]ACER Aspire 7720 Laptop Keyboard Mark commissioned the renowned architect Howard Van Doren Shaw to design Marktown. Shaw had designed Mark’s own home in Lake Forest, Illinois in 1912.[10] The final design of Marktown has been described[who?] as an att

empt to recreate a gracious English country village. Construction was stopped when only a fraction of the original plans for Marktown were completed due to the aftereffects of World War I, HP Pavilion dv6-2125el Laptop Keyboard and the sale of his steel plant to Youngstown Sheet and Tube. All of the original structures stand, and are considered representative of the planned industrial community movement of the late nineteenth and early 20th century. Mark’s planned worker community in Northwest Indiana is regarded as an important cultural resource of architectural and historical significance, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[11]DELL Vostro PP37L Laptop Keyboard Civic activities Mark’s chief civic interest was in the field of public education, and he had a large impact on the shaping of the Chicago School Systems. Mark served on the Board of Education from 1896–1905, and served as its President from 1902-1905.[12] As President of the Board of Education, Mark facilitated the building of new schools to alleviate crowded conditions, TOSHIBA Satellite C650-182 Laptop Keyboard including the Edgar Allan Poe School in Pullman.[13] Many of Mark’s efforts were aimed at increasing the efficiency of the school system and increasing attendance. For example, he advocated the appointment and promotion of teachers based on merit. He also advocated better sanitary conditions, the establishment of school playgrounds, the extension of technical schools, and the incorporation of kindergartens into public schools.[5]HP 317443-001 Laptop Keyboard Mark served several terms as President of the Civic Federation of Chicago from 1907 to 1929, an active reform group that addressed the city’s social and political problems.[14] It is noteworthy that Mark worked with Jane Addams on a number of educational and social reforms. Clayton Mark has been described by historians as taking part in a phenomenal number of civic affairs with overwhelming energy and drive, and that "…he tried in every way to protect and foster the things in life that made it possible for him so it would be possible for others."[5][9][15]SONY VAIO VGN-FS742/W Laptop Keyboard

Early life and career

Harper was born on July 26, 1856, in New Concord, Ohio1, Harper's parents were of Irish-Scottish ancestry.[2] Very early in his life, Harper displayed skills years ahead of other children of his age, and he was labeled a child prodigy. By the age of eight, Harper began preparing for college-level courses. At the age of ten he enrolled in Muskingum College in his native New Concord, FUJITSU Amilo Mini Ui 3520 Laptop Keyboard Ohio. At the age of fourteen, he graduated from Muskingum College. In 1872, Harper enrolled in Yale University to begin his postgraduate studies, and he completed these in 1876. Harper quickly assumed a series of faculty positions, including ones at Denison University and Yale University. Throughout his academic life, Harper wrote numerous textbooks. A strong supporter of lifelong learning, Harper was also involved with the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York, and its academic programs starting in 1883.[3]SONY NSK-S8101 Laptop Keyboard In 1891, John D. Rockefeller selected thirty-five year-old Harper to assist in organizing the University of Chicago, and shortly thereafter, he was selected as its first president. In hiring the faculty the new university and selecting its students, Harper set the standards quite high. Harper elevated the salaries of the faculty members above those of ordinary schoolteachers, and by doing so,  HP 605344-001 Laptop Keyboard he attracted the best scholars to the university. Harper had expert knowledge of every department of education as well as business acumen, and he was a very powerful public speaker .[2]HP Pavilion dv6-2112sa Laptop Keyboard In addition to encouraging the establishment for the first department of Egyptology and Sociology in the United States, Harper ensured the establishment of the University of Chicago Press. Harper also instituted the first extension service in America designed to bring classes to those who could not attend regular classes—because of their work or other obligations. SONY VAIO VGN-FS690 Laptop Keyboard One of Harper's ideas, that students should be able to study the first two years of college in their own communities to be better prepared for the rigors of college, helped lead to the creation of the system of community colleges in the United States.

Relationship to other disciplines and approaches

As used by lawyers and legal scholars, the phrase "law and economics" refers to the application of the methods of economics to legal problems. Because of the overlap between legal systems and political systems, some of the issues in law and economics are also raised in political economy, constitutional economics and political science. Most formal academic work done in law and economics is broadly within the Neoclassical tradition.[citation needed]APPLE MacBook pro 13 inch Laptop Keyboard Approaches to the same issues from Marxist and critical theory/Frankfurt School perspectives usually do not identify themselves as "law and economics". For example, research by members of the critical legal studies movement and thesociology of law considers many of the same fundamental issues as does work labeled "law and economics".TOSHIBA Portege M200 Laptop Keyboard The one wing that represents a non-neoclassical approach to "law and economics" is the Continental (mainly German) tradition that sees the concept starting out of the governance and public policy (Staatswissenschaften) approach and the German Historical school of economics;  DELL Latitude D531 Laptop Keyboard this view is represented in the Elgar Companion to Law and Economics (2nd ed. 2005) and—though not exclusively—in the European Journal of Law and Economics. Here, consciously non-neoclassical approaches to economics are used for the analysis of legal (and administrative/governance) problems. TOSHIBA Satellite U305-S7467 Laptop Keyboard As early as in the 18th century, Adam Smith discussed the economic effect of mercantilist legislation. However, to apply economics to analyze the law regulating nonmarket activities is relatively new. In 1961, Ronald Coase and Guido Calabresi independently from each other published two groundbreaking articles: "The Problem of Social Cost"[2] and "Some Thoughts on Risk Distribution and the Law of Torts".[3] This can be seen as the starting point for the modern school of law and economics.[4]TOSHIBA Satellite pro 4600 Laptop Keyboard In the early 1970s, Henry Manne (a former student of Coase) set out to build a Center for Law and Economics at a major law school. He began at Rochester, worked at Miami, but was soon made unwelcome, moved to Emory, and ended at George Mason. The latter soon became a center for the education of judges—many long out of law school and never exposed to numbers and economics. Manne also attracted the support of the John M. Olin Foundation, whose support accelerated the movement. Today, Olin centers (or programs) for Law and Economics exist at many universities. HP 605344-001 Laptop Keyboard Important figures include the Nobel Prize winning economists Ronald Coase and Gary Becker, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit judges Frank Easterbrook and Richard Posner, Andrei Shleifer and other distinguished scholars such as Robert Cooter, Henry Manne, William Landes, and A. Mitchell Polinsky.Guido Calabresi, judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, author of the 1970 book, HP Mini 210-2005sa Laptop Keyboard The Costs of Accidents: A Legal and Economic Analysis, wrote in depth on this subject, with Costs of Accidents being cited as influential in its extensive treatment of the proper incentives and compensation required in accident situations.[5] Calabresi took a different approach in his 1985 book, Ideals, Beliefs, Attitudes, and the Law, where he argued, "who is the cheapest avoider of a cost, depends on the valuations put on acts, activities and beliefs by the whole of our law and not on some objective or scientific notion (69)." DELL Studio 1558 Laptop Keyboard Influence In the United States, economic analysis of law has been extremely influential. Judicial opinions utilize economic analysis and the theories of law and economics with some regularity. The influence of law and economics has also been felt in legal education. Many law schools in North America, Europe, and Asia have faculty members with a graduate degree in economics.  DELL Latitude E5510 Laptop Keyboard In addition, many professional economists now study and write on the relationship between economics and legal doctrines. Anthony Kronman, former dean of Yale Law School, has written that "the intellectual movement that has had the greatest influence on American academic law in the past quarter-century [of the 20th Century]" is law and economics.[6]SAMSUNG Q330-JS01 Laptop Keyboard are modeled on "first-best" (Pareto optimal) general-equilibrium conditions. Under the theory of the second best, for example, if the fulfillment of a subset of optimal conditions cannot be met under any circumstances, it is incorrect to conclude that the fulfillment of any subset of optimal conditions will necessarily result in an increase in allocative efficiency.[7]ACER Aspire 5745P Laptop Keyboard Consequently, any expression of public policy whose purported purpose is an unambiguous increase in allocative efficiency (for example, consolidation ofresearch and development costs through increased mergers and acquisitions resulting from a systematic relaxation of anti-trust laws) is, according to critics, fundamentally incorrect, as there is no general reason to conclude that an increase in allocative efficiency is more likely than a decrease. COMPAQ Presario CQ60-300EV Laptop Keyboard Essentially, the "first-best" neoclassical analysis fails to properly account for various kinds of general-equilibrium feedback relationships that result from intrinsic Pareto imperfections.[7]  SONY VAIO VGN-FS530B Laptop Keyboard Another critique comes from the fact that there is no unique optimal result. Warren Samuels in his 2007 book, The Legal-Economic Nexus, argues, "efficiency in the Pareto sense cannot dispositively be applied to the definition and assignment of rights themselves, because efficiency requires an antecedent determination of the rights (23-4)."

Universities with law and economics programs

Almost every major American law school, and most leading economics departments, offer courses in law and economics and has faculty working in the field. Two of the leading law schools focusing on Law and Economics are the University of Chicago Law School, whose faculty includes Judge Richard A. Posner, Ronald Coase and Gary Becker, and the George Mason University School of Law, whose faculty used to include Nobel laureate Vernon Smith (though Smith and his team have since moved to Chapman University),  TOSHIBA 99.n7482.001 Laptop Keyboard and perennial Nobel finalist Gordon Tullock. In the spring of 2006, Vanderbilt University Law School announced the creation of a new program to award a Ph.D. in Law & Economics. A ranking of law and economics Ph.D. programs was published in the Southern Economics Journal in 2008, and also includes among the top 10 programs (based on publications in the field) the economics departments at UC Berkeley, TOSHIBA Equium A60 Series Laptop Keyboard Harvard University, University of Connecticut, UC San Diego, Princeton University, MIT, University of Wisconsin - Madison, Florida State University, Central Michigan University, and the University of Michigan.[8]ACER Aspire 5742 Laptop Keyboard In Europe, a consortium of universities from ten different countries is running the European Master Program in Law and Economics, also known as EMLE, which is a European program in the field since 1990. This programme offers the unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at two or even three European and Non-European universities. DELL Vostro PP37L Laptop Keyboard Each partner university awards a Master degree (LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.). The programme also provides students with an advanced understanding of the economic effects of divergent laws and prepares students for a professional career, for example, in public organisations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Graduates are also well prepared for doctorate research in a PhD programme such as the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE), which is operated by three European centers in Law and Economics. http://www.edle-phd.eu]  HP Pavilion G6-1B59WM Laptop Keyboard The University of Toronto's Faculty of Law offers a combined J.D./M.A. Economics, as well as a J.D./Ph.D. Economics.
