Oren Bar-Gill's Seduction by Contract: Law, Economics, and Psychology in Consumer Markets examines the pull of the consumer contract and discusses why we are routinely “seduced” into entering agreements that ultimately do not benefit us.
In this compact and highly readable book, Bar-Gill looks at the law, economics and psychology of consumer contracts, analyzes specific consumer markets with detailed case studies, and calls for improved legal policy providing for more effective disclosure mandates to benefit consumers.
It is a recommended addition to academic, court and government libraries.
