TodayÕs economy is built on the foundations of a global industrial
and financial system with immense productive capacity, yet one
that is increasingly vulnerable to threats from climate change to
rising inequality. As activists pursue new forms of exchange that
embed social and ecological limits, Law for a New Economy:
Enterprise, Sharing, Regulation finds fertile and important
implications for law and legality.
Beyond Ôdigital disruptorsÕ such as Airbnb and Uber, the essays in
this collection focus on initiatives that link systematic economic
change to democratic empowerment, grass-roots struggle, and the
pursuit of environmental and social justice. Resonating with the
rise of cross-disciplinary interest in the solidarity economy and the
commons, Law for a New Economy seeks to disentangle the
intersecting practices of production, consumption, resources, rules,
and relationships that constitute an economy. The collection is both
purposive and open-ended, offering answers but also posing
questions. It stands as a call for further exploration of socio-legal
strategies and imaginaries central to shaping new economies of this
kind.
