Columbia University

For Support Of The Law And Political Economy Initiative

Law and Political Economy at Columbia is an initiative to produce foundational scholarship on the ways the law shapes economic order, and how both law and the economy can better serve democracy. Produced by leading scholars and paired with public lectures, a series of volumes will address the following questions: How does the law create value and distribute power under financial capitalism? What is the role of the state in creating money, and how can a clearer understanding of currency shape legal change? How do concentration and market dominance arise in an information-driven economy? How much democracy is possible in large, distracted societies facing complex problems? New approaches to these questions will help to anchor an affirmative vision of legal and political order beyond neoliberalism among scholars, administrators, judges, and legislators.
