This week, we featured work from a recent issue of the Journal of Law and Political Economy.

On Monday, Lenore Palladino discussed why workers should be represented on corporate boards, and how such a requirement might be implemented in the United States.

On Tuesday, Peer Zumbansen argued that an LPE approach, which challenges the purportedly self-explanatory relationship between law and the economy, is especially productive when turned transnationally.

And on Thursday, Brian Callaci explained how franchisors deploy trademark and antitrust law to obtain the low-wage, deskilled work processes they desire, without incurring the risks and duties of an employer.
