The Diverging Rationalities of Public Finance and International Law: A Plea for a Deliberative Approach

Posted on Actualizado enn

Matthias Goldmann
Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public and International Law

The ongoing financial crisis has revealed a number of tensions between public finance as a sub-field of economics, and international law. One can distinguish two different, but related scenarios: In some cases, international legal rules which have an underlying economic rationale conflict with international legal obligations pursuing other public policy objectives. Given the financial constraints backing up the former rules, the latter ones might succumb for structural reasons. In other cases, international legal rules contain references to economic concepts or assessments. This might imbue international law with far-reaching controversies of economic theory. Together, both scenarios might call the normativity of international law into question. Also, they invite for blame-shifting between lawyers and economists. Leer el resto de esta entrada »

Posner & Sykes: Economic Foundations of International Law

Posted on Actualizado enn

Eric A. Posner (Univ. of Chicago – Law) & Alan O. Sykes (New York Univ. – Law) have published Economic Foundations of International Law (Harvard Univ. Press 2013). Here’s the abstract:

The ever-increasing exchange of goods and ideas among nations, as well as cross-border pollution, global warming, and international crime, pose urgent questions for international law. Here, two respected scholars provide an intellectual framework for assessing these pressing legal problems from a rational choice perspective.

The approach assumes that states are rational, forward-looking agents which use international law to address the actions of other states that may have consequences for their own citizens, and to obtain the benefits of international cooperation. It further assumes that in the absence of a central enforcement agency—that is, a world government—international law must be self-enforcing. States must believe that if they violate international agreements, other states will retaliate. Leer el resto de esta entrada »
