Abstract

The paper engages with the expansion of economic analysis into the social sciences, especially in the realm of legal studies. The paper pays particular attention to the recent use of microeconomic analysis as an explanatory avenue to approach human behavior in conditions of scarcity. In the first part, the paper offers a review of the substantive and methodological assumptions and operations of the field of Law and Economics. In the second part of the paper, the increasing shortage of human organs for transplant is used as an example to illustrate and examine the value, as well as the limitations, of Law and Economics.
