Podcast episode Leo Katz on Why the Law is So Perverse

EconTalk Episode with Leo Katz
Hosted by Russ Roberts

katz.jpg Leo Katz, professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about his book, Why the Law Is So Perverse.

Katz also argues that structure of the law and how it is enforced are analogous to certain inevitable ambiguities of collective choice and voting theory.
