Those not learned in the economic arts believe that economics is either solely or essentially concerned with commercial relations. And, so it was, originally. Then, in the second half of the 20th century, economists began applying their minimalist but sturdy tools to other human activities such as marriage, child-bearing, crime, religion and social groups. In this spirit, the Research Handbook on the Economics of Family Law gives us a series of original essays by distinguished scholars in economics, law or both. The essays represent a variety of approaches to the field. Many contain extensive surveys of the literature with respect to the particular question they address. Some employ empirical economics, others are more narrowly legal. They have in common one thing: each scholar employs a core economic tool or insight to shed light on some aspect of family law and social institutions broadly understood. Topics covered include: divorce, child support, infant feeding, abortion access, prostitution, the decline in marriage, birth control and incentives for partnering. This comprehensive and enlightening volume will be a valuable reference for those interested in law and economics generally and family law in particular.

"The Law and Economics approach to law dominates the intellectual discussion of nearly every doctrinal area of law in the US and its influence is growing steadily outside America as well. 2013 marked the fortieth anniversary of the publication of Richard Posner's Economic Analysis of Law, the book that launched the Law and Economics movement. The eighth edition of the book was published in 2011, this time competing against over twenty textbooks, collections and casebooks on law and economics. Although there has been phenomenal growth in this area questions remain. Why has Law and Economics movement become so successful? What is the current status of the Chicago School? What are the alternative theories and how much influence do they exert? What can be considered mainstream today? What are the norms and values underlying this impressive body of research? These issues, amongst others, are thoroughly explored by the contributors"--

English summary: In spite of its liberal stance, German private law has numerous regulations aimed at protecting the contracting party from the disadvantages of his/her own decision. Based on this fact, Klaus Ulrich Schmolke traces the requirements and limits of legal paternalistic intervention in the freedom of contract and, using the insight gained from this, he develops a concept of the conditions for the justification of legal paternalism in private contractual relationships. German description: Das aufklarerische Ideal des freien und selbstbestimmten Menschen bildet einen Eckpfeiler des deutschen Privatrechts. Es findet seinen Ausdruck im Prinzip der Privatautonomie und ihrer wichtigsten Auspragung, der Vertragsfreiheit. Aus dieser liberalen Grundhaltung speist sich eine weitgehende Ablehnung rechtspaternalistischer Freiheitsbeschrankung. Diesen antipaternalistischen Bekenntnissen zum Trotz ist das Zivilrecht von zahlreichen paternalistischen Regelungen durchsetzt. Dieses Paternalismusparadox nimmt Klaus Ulrich Schmolke zum Anlass, den Voraussetzungen und Grenzen rechtspaternalistischer Intervention in die Freiheit zur vertraglichen Selbstbindung nachzuspuren und aus den hierbei gewonnenen Erkenntnissen eine Konzeption der Zulassigkeitsbedingungen von Rechtspaternalismus im vertraglichen Privatrechtsverkehr zu entwickeln. Hierfur lotet er das Potential der verhaltensokonomischen Einsichten uber das menschliche Entscheidungsverhalten zur Begrundung rechtspaternalistischer Intervention in die Vertragsfreiheit aus. Seine Ergebnisse uberpruft er anhand der Referenzgebiete des Familien-, Gesellschafts- und Verbraucherrechts.

'This urgently needed, groundbreaking book provides solid data that coincides with the real life stories I have been hearing for years from men and women nationwide regarding unfair child support laws and policies that have resulted in adverse effects on their children and families. I anticipate that this book will have a major positive impact on social policy and the general collective attitudes toward families in today's society. The information presented in this book must be read and understood by every policymaker to insure that child support policies are made just and fair so that all families can prosper.' - Dianna Thompson, National Family Justice Association, US The delinquent payment of child support by non-custodial to custodial parents is a major problem throughout the United States. To many observers, the problem is one of 'deadbeat dads' - men who simply will not make the required payments. The solution has been to enforce payment by the imposition of increasingly stringent civil and criminal penalties. Despite these efforts, the percentage of single mothers receiving child support has changed very little over the past twenty-five years. The Law and Economics of Child Support Payments investigates why this is, and approaches the payment of child support as an economic problem.

This completely updated second edition presents an integrated, multidisciplinary account of children's experiences of divorce from historical, cultural and demographic perspectives. The author highlights children's resilience, but is sensitive to children's pain throughout the divorce process and afterwards. In addition he reviews the psychological, social, economic and legal consequences of divorce, and examines how children's risk is predicted by parental conflict, relationships with both parents, financial strain, custody disputes, and other factors. The author uses his family systems model to integrate research findings into a theoretical whole and to evaluate psychological interventions with divorcing and divorced families.
