Whatever Happened to Justice? rev. ed.
Explains the common law model. Maybury says, "In my opinion, you and your family and friends will avoid a lot of trouble, and find success of every kind easier to achieve, if you adopt these two models, Austrian economics and common law. 'Penny Candy' explains the Economic model. Now, read 'Justice' for the Legal model. Underlying common law are two basic rules: 1) do all that you agreed to do and 2) do not encroach on other persons or their property."
