An Analysis of the Economic Torts

This chapter considers the two 21st century decisions of the House of Lords concerning the general economic torts: OBG and Total Network. Though in both decisions the House of Lords attempted to resolve some uncertainties, a clear view of these torts — both in relation to their ingredients and their framework — is lacking. A critical review of both decisions is followed by a discussion of the growing academic debate concerning this area of tort law. Three possible agendas for the torts are outlined: the extended civil party agenda, the two-party civil liability agenda as a supplement to the first agenda, and the extended civil liability agenda for both the direct and indirect infliction of economic harm. There is a concluding suggestion as to the most coherent way forward offered.

Keywords:   OBG, Total Network, extended civil party agenda, extended civil liability agenda, House of Lords, general economic torts
