In their book The Economic Structure of Corporate Law, Frank H. Easterbrook, a judge for the Seventh Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals and a former law professor at the University of Chicago, and Daniel R. Fischel, the Lee and Brena Freeman Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, have very effectively brought economic analysis to bear on corporate law problems. The result is another impressive demonstration of the combination of theoretical argument and close attention to supporting data (usually in the form of stock market event studies) which has become characteristic of the economic and financial literature on the corporation over the last two decades.
