About Consumer Law and Policy

This new edition continues to provide a critical introduction to the legal regulation of consumer markets, situating it within the context of broader debates about rationales for regulation, the role of the state and the growth of neo-liberalism. It draws on interdisciplinary sources, assessing, for example, the increased influence of behavioural economics on consumer law. It analyses the Europeanisation of consumer law and the tensions between neo-liberalism and the social market, consumer protection and consumer choice, in the establishment of the single market ground rules. The book also assesses national, regional and international responses to the world financial crisis as reflected in the regulation of consumer credit markets.

This edition incorporates recent legislative and judicial developments of the law, blending substantial extracts from primary UK, EU and international legal materials.

Reviews

“... engaging and thought provoking consideration of the role of consumer law, its influences and its future.

Readers looking for a critical account of the role of consumer law and policy need note look any further. Ramsay's arguments are balanced, often compelling and sometimes controversial. Consumer Law and Policy... also includes a number of excellent extracts allowing the reader to quickly undertake further research... a wonderful addition to any consumer lawyer's library.
