Junji Nakagawa, Jonathan Bloch, Tara Cannon. International harmonization of economic regulation. Oxford University Press, 2011.

K3850.N3513 2011

 

With the advancing globalization of the world economy, domestic economic regulations are becoming more and more subject to efforts at international harmonization. This book presents an analysis of this worldwide phenomenon from both a legal and a politico-economic perspective by focusing on the backgrounds and objectives of international harmonization, the negotiating processes involved, and the impact of harmonization on domestic laws and their administration. International harmonization is discussed in a wide range of cases including trade-related regulations, intellectual property rights, labor standards, competition law and policy, and regulations concerning transnational economic crime.

 

 

 

 

 

Tamara R. Piety. Brandishing the First Amendment : commercial expression in America. University of Michigan Press, 2012.

KF4772.P54 2012

 

Over the past two decades, corporations and other commercial entities have used strategic litigation to win more expansive First Amendment protections for commercial speech—from the regulation of advertising to the role corporate interests play in the political process, most recently debated in the Supreme Court case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. This book argues that such an expansion of First Amendment speech rights imperils public health, safety, and welfare; the reliability of commercial and consumer information; the stability of financial markets; and the global environment.
