Regulating Contracts

Hugh Collins

This chapter examines the reasons for the construction of relations of domination and subordination through contracts in three diverse contexts: consumer purchases under standard form contracts, the employment relation and other types of agency, and in networks of contracts that amount to inchoate organizations. In each context, the possible objects of regulation, and how those objects might by accomplished efficiently and effectively, are considered. It is argued that the objective should not be simply to attempt to combat relations of domination, but rather to improve the efficiency of these types of contract by revising their structures and market contexts.

Keywords:   domination, subordination, mass contracts, principal, agent, regulation
