Abstract

Current crises of economic inequality and eroding democracy require us to move beyond legal orientations that prioritize efficiency, neutrality, and apolitical governance. We suggest new orientations and questions for scholarship on “law and political economy” that instead foregrounds realities of power, aspires toward equality, and is committed to democracy.

Keywords: political economy, law and economics, constitutional law
