Court decisions and legislation have a profound impact on the economy because they define and modify property rights. Economists have therefore always been interested in analyzing this impact. In the present work, we will deliver a critique of Coase’s approach and then outline an alternative approach to the study of law and economics. Although this alternative approach has a venerable tradition in economic science, it lacks a generally recognized name. We will call it “property economics.”
