There remains an urgent need for a deeper discussion of the theoretical, political and federal dimensions of the European codification project. While much valuable work has already been undertaken, the chapters in this volume take as their starting point the proposition that further reflection and critical thought will enhance the quality and efficacy of the on-going work of the various codification bodies. The volume contains chapters by representatives of the Common Frame of Reference, the Study Group and the Acquis Group as well as by those who have not been involved in particular projects but who have previously commented more distantly on their work - for instance those belonging to the Trento Group, and the Social Justice Group. The chapters between them represent the most comprehensive attempt so far to survey the state of the codification project, its theoretical, political and federal foundations and the future prospects for enforcement and compliance.

Fairness in Antitrust

Protecting the Strong from the Weak

What drives popular support for state-enforced competition policy? What is it about antitrust law that garners approval from both the public and courts, to the point of demonizing large firms convicted of antitrust offenses? In this book Adi Ayal argues that the populist roots of antitrust are still with us, guiding sentiment towards a legal regime that has otherwise shifted towards economic analysis. Antitrust is very much about fairness and morality; this book assesses how modern policy has hijacked popular support - based on traditional conceptions of political and economic power - to combat market power in narrowly defined micro-markets. Beginning with history, but delving into moral and political philosophy, Professor Ayal shows how arguments concerning fairness in antitrust apply both to monopolists and their victims. Fairness thus requires a balancing test based on context and respecting the rights of all parties involved. While traditionally fairness arguments were used to justify intervention where economic analysis did not, this book assesses them from first principles, to show that pure efficiency analysis is flawed from a moral standpoint when the state intervenes. Protecting weak consumers from strong monopolists may carry rhetorical weight, but the reality of antitrust is that the state is much more powerful than almost all firms it regulates. Protecting the strong from the weak, especially when 'weak' consumers hold legal power and influence, might very well be a moral imperative. This book offers a philosophical account of the conundrum facing competition policy which challenges widely-held yet often implicit and unfounded beliefs.

Disability and Shopping:Customers, Markets and the State provides an examination of the diverse experiences and perspectives of disabled customers, industry and civil society. It discusses how the interaction between the three stakeholders should be shaped at aiming to decrease inequality and marginalisation. Shopping is a part of everyday modern life and yet businesses struggle to adequately meet the needs of 80 million disabled customers in the European Union single market. While there has been extensive research into how individuals engage in customer roles and experience, and how businesses and policies both shape and respond to these, little is known of the same dynamics and practices regarding people with impairments. This book addresses this need by revealing the perspectives, interactions and experiences of disabled customers and their interaction with policy and business. It will be required reading for all scholars and students of disability studies, sociology, marketing and customer relations.

Oko-Kapitalismus

Die Industrielle Revolution Des 21. Jahrhunderts

In "Oko- Kapitalismus, three top strategists show how leading hedge companies are practicing "a new type of industrialism" that is more efficient and profitable, while saving the environment and creating jobs. Paul Hawken and Amory and Hunter Lovins write that in the next century cars will get 200 miles per gallon without compromising safety and power, manufacturers will relentlessly recycle their products, and the world's standard of living will jump without further damaging natural resources. "Is this the vision of a utopia? In fact, the changes described here could come about in the decades to come as the result of economic and technological trends already in place," the authors write. Die Wirtschaftsstragien der Zukunft werden sich an der effizienten Nutzung natuerlicher Ressourcen orientieren. Sie werden damit nicht nur umweltbedingte und soziale Probleme loesen, sondern auch Wohlstand bringen. Seit Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts haben wir Menschen die Natur in groesserem Umfang zerstoert als in allen historischen Epochen davor. Saemtliche lebenden Systeme, die Waelder und Grasflaechen, die Savannen und Steppen, die Fluesse und Meere, die Korallenriffe und die Atmosphaere befinden sich in einem Zustand hoechster Gefaehrdung. Nicht nur die erneuerbaren Ressourcen drohen sich zu erschoepfen, das Leben selbst befindet sich auf dem Rueckzug. Wir laufen Gefahr, das natuerliche Kapital der Erde zu verlieren. Fuer Paul Hawken, Amory Lovins und Hunter Lovins offenbaren sich in dieser Entwicklung die Schatten der industriellen Revolution des 19. Jahrhunderts, die zwar zu einer ungeheuren Steigerung der Produktivitaet des einzelnen fuehrte, am Ende jedoch in einen Krieg gegen die Naturmuendete. Was die Autoren fordern, ist ein radikales Umdenken in Richtung auf eine neue Form des Wirtschaftens, in der die Dienstleistungen der Natur nicht ignoriert werden. Die Dienste, die uns die natuerlichen Systeme leisten, sind vielfaeltig. Ein Wald etwa liefert nicht nur Holz. Er bindet auch Kohlendioxid, schuetzt vor UEberschwemmungen, speichert Naehrstoffe in seinem Boden und vieles mehr. Dass wir uns verhalten haben, als waeren diese Dienste wertlos, fuehrt zu einem grossen Desaster. In Wahrheit naemlich ist der Wert dieser Dienstleistungen geradezu unendlich. Keine Technik kann das lebenserhaltende, hochintelligente und komplexe System des Planeten ersetzen. Wuerden wir jedoch tatsaechlich einen Preis ansetzen, dann beliefe sich der Wert der Dienstleistungen des natuerlichen Kapitalstocks, der jedes Jahr direkt in die Gesellschaft fliesst, auf 33 Billionen Dollar. Der natuerliche Kapitalstock selbst waere mit 400 bis 500 Billionen Dollar zu veranschlagen. Aus diesen Zahlen wird deutlich, wie verantwortungslos und verschwenderisch wir in der Vergangenheit gewirtschaftet haben. Paul Hawken, Amory Lovins und Hunter Lovins stellen dem industriellen Kapitalismus ihr Konzept des Oko-Kapitalismus gegenueber, in dem allen Formen des Kapitals ein Wert zuerkannt wird. Die Dienstleistungen der Umwelt sind in diesem System kein zu vernachlaessigender Produktionsfaktor mehr, sondern werden als die Basis angesehen, die den gesamten Wirtschaftsprozess aufrechterhaelt. Innerhalb von 50 Jahren koennten sich der Lebensstandard weltweit verdoppeln, der Ressourcenverbrauch um 80 Prozent zurueckgehen, der Kohlendioxidgehalt der Atmosphaere zum ersten Mal seit 200 Jahren sinken und Arbeit fueralle geschaffen werden. Was die Autoren beschreiben, ist kein Utopia, sondern eroeffnet sich als reale Moeglichkeit. So wie es vor 300 Jahren als unmoeglich angesehen worden waere, dass ein Mensch die Arbeit von hundert vollbringen kann, so mag es heute unrealistisch erscheinen, dass wir die Produktivitaet unserer Ressourcen um den Faktor Hundert steigern koennen. Und doch gibt es bereits Ansaetze fuer diese neue industrielle Revolution. In ihrem Buch haben die Autoren eine enorme Fuelle von Beispielen zusammengetragen, die zeigen, dass ein effizientes Wirtschaften moeglich ist. Sie berichten von technischen Innovationen sowie von neuen Formen der Organisation und der Produktion. Anhand von Konzepten und Loesungsvorschlaegen legen sie dar, wie industrielle Prozesse in Kreislaeufen gestaltet werden koennen, die weit ueber das blosse Recyceln von Altpapier und Glas hinausgehen.
