Guy Davidov and Brian Langille have assembled a stable of prominent academics to address The Idea of Labour Law (Oxford U. Press 2011). Their responses vary from cries of despair to proposals for major reformulation to less radical adaptation to contemporary circumstances that have conduced toward a lessened relevance for collective bargaining and a heightened concern for market efficiency. This essay attempts to unpack these critiques, to provide a deeper historical framework, and to emphasize the continuing vitality of societal concern for the consequences of the marketization of labor as the law’s axial concern.
