This reading group will consider the economic theories of bequests. We will read the seminal studies in the economics literature, theoretical and empirical, and then we will consider how well -- if at all -- these studies address the legal and institutional considerations that are intuitive for lawyers but are typically overlooked by economists.
Prerequisite: Trusts and Estates
Subject Areas: Taxation, Disciplinary Perspectives & Law, Family, Gender & Children's Law
