Methods for Legal-Economic Research into Rural Problems.
Hines, N. William, Ed.; Harris, Marshall, Ed.
The report contains a series of papers that have been presented during the past decade by lawyers and economists at workshops sponsored by the North Central Land Economics Research Committee. The papers describe the bringing together of legal and economic research methods in order to solve rural problems. The first paper is entitled "Legal-Economic Research in Theory and Practice" and states that interdisciplinary research is essential for a broader view of a problem. "The Legal Researcher's Methods" is the second presentation, giving a detailed analysis of how a lawyer uses the classic law library, the non-legal library, and other methods to accomplish his research. The third paper deals with the research methods the economist uses and is entitled "Acquisitions of Primary and Secondary Data in Economics." The fourth presentation is "Research Methods Adaptable to Legal-Economic Inquiry" which concludes that linear programing and simulation are valid tools for this type of research. The fifth paper is called "Organization for Legal-Economic and Related Research," treating the problem of organizing across disciplinary lines and the difficulties encountered. The sixth and last paper is a summary of the workshops and re-emphasises and critiques the major points of each individual paper. (RH)
