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.

Consumer law and policy has emerged in the last half-century as a major policy concern for all nations. This Handbook of original contributions provides an international and comparative analysis of central issues in consumer law and policy in developed and developing economies. The Handbook encompasses questions of both social policy and effective business regulation. Many of the issues are common to all countries and are becoming increasingly globalised due to the growth in international trade and technological developments such as the Internet. The authors provide a broad coverage of both substantive topics and institutional questions concerning optimal approaches to enforcement and the role of class actions in consumer policy. It also includes comparative insights into the influential EU and US models of consumer law and relates consumer law to contemporary trends in human rights law. Written by a carefully selected group of international experts, this text represents an authoritative resource for understanding contemporary and future developments in consumer law. This Handbook will provide students, researchers and policymakers with an insight to the main policy debates in each context and provide models of legal regulation to assist in the evaluation of laws and the development of consumer law and policy.

Consumer protection law has special relevance to antitrust practitioners. The most influential single authority on consumer protection, the Federal Trade Commission, is also a prominent feature of the antitrust landscape. In recent years, there has been increasing cooperation and cross-pollination between the FTC's Competition and Consumer Protection Bureaus. In addition, the statutes that govern antitrust and consumer protection are intertwined -- not only the FTC but also the numerous state laws that combine "unfair competition" claims (often cognizable as antitrust violations) with unfair and deceptive acts and practices. Not surprisingly, then, complaints by aggrieved competitors often allege both antitrust and consumer protection causes of action. For legal practitioners who are nonspecialists in consumer protection law, such as the general practitioner and corporate counsel, Consumer Protection Handbook is a concise guide to the basic principles of consumer protection law. Especially with the advent of e-commerce, firms are potentially subject to more varied consumer protection laws, in more jurisdictions, than ever before. This book analyzes principles of the most important consumer protection laws, provides an overview of the avenues available to the potential complainant and the risks faced by a potential defendant, and serves as a starting point for further research. The emphasis is on the law as it pertains to false advertising, unfair and deceptive trade practices, and privacy. This book also provides a brief description of the enforcement powers and available remedies, both for public and private litigants, under the major consumer protection statutes. The next section discusses consumer protection enforcement under federal law, both by the government -- that is, the FTC -- and by private plaintiffs under the Lanham Act. The final chapter shifts to state law and provides a broad understanding of the types of practices proscribed in many of the states and the sources from which challenges may come. Practitioners can use this material as a springboard to further close examination of the relevant statutory and case law in the specific jurisdiction. The statutes addressed in detail are Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, which defines the unfair and deceptive practices regulated by the FTC; Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, which creates a federal private cause of action for false and misleading advertising; and the various state consumer protection and unfair and deceptive practices statutes enforced by state attorneys general, by other agencies, and by private plaintiffs.
