Weekly Top 10

Some changes this week as two articles by yours truly drop off as being too old to be "recent."  Fuled by a lot of positive discussion in the blogosphere, Richard Lazarus's article on Justice Scalia picked up almost 200 downloads last week and is shooting up the chart.  Lazarus also has a new article appearing at #10, and Economic Analysis of Law by A. Mitchell Polinsky and Steven Shavell is new to the chart at #6; here's the abstract:

This entry for the forthcoming The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics (Second Edition) surveys the economic analysis of five primary fields of law: property law; liability for accidents; contract law; litigation; and public enforcement and criminal law. It also briefly considers some criticisms of the economic analysis of law.
