    The Private Origins of the Private Company: Britain 1862–1907.Ron Harris - 2013 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 33 (2):339-378.
    This article recalls the fact that until the mid-19th century neither company legislation, nor jurists, nor economists, envisioned companies to be private or small. Nevertheless, once freedom of incorporation and general limited liability were enacted, a new practice was set in motion in Britain. Smaller companies were formed in growing numbers, replacing partnerships, family firms and even sole proprietorships. They operated in sectors in which corporations had not been found before. These companies did not seek access to the stock markets. (...)

    The Uses of History in Law and Economics.Ron Harris - 2003 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 4 (2).
    During the last quarter of the twentieth century, the humanities and social sciences have turned toward history, something that culminated in the 1990s, and this phenomenon was evident in law as well. However, until recently, law and economics, the most influential post-World War II jurisprudential movement, was a-historical in its methodology and research agenda. The first objective of this article is to call attention to this neglected characteristic of law and economics and to explain its causes by analyzing its intellectual (...)

    Some Reflections on the Transplantation of British Company Law in Post-Ottoman Palestine.Michael Crystal & Ron Harris - 2009 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 10 (2):561-587.
    This Article discusses the transplantation and harmonization of company law legislation in the British Empire in the early 20th century and in Palestine in particular. It describes the displacement of Ottoman law and its replacement by British company law in Palestine, particularly through the Palestine Companies Ordinance 1929. The Article suggests that the transplantation of British company legislation into Palestine was neither straightforward nor all-encompassing. The Article discusses some specific areas of transplantation difficulty in the case of mandatory Palestine, viz. (...)

    Bankruptcy Policy in Light of Manipulation in Credit Advertising.Einat Albin & Ron Harris - 2006 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 7 (2):431-466.
    This Article argues that when credit suppliers market and advertise their credit products, they utilize and enhance consumers’ cognitive biases, particularly their optimism bias and illusion of control. We apply the concept of manipulation to this practice. The biased and manipulated debtors attribute unrealistically low probability to negative life events, such as job loss, illness, accident or divorce, and high probability to positive life events. As a result of the manipulation, the biased debtors are triggered to borrow more than they (...)
