Regulating Contracts

Hugh Collins

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the problem of disappointments arising from poor quality in goods and services. Although no one doubts that poor quality sometimes occurs, the question of whether any type of regulation can prevent disappointments is more contested. In particular, private law is often regarded as ineffective in imposing reasonable standards of quality. The chapter closely examines how private law can achieve the capacity to achieve efficacious and efficient styles of regulation of quality.

Keywords:   poor quality, good and services, regulation, disappointments
