His current research projects include:
Adapting Behavioral Law and Economic Approaches to a World of Imperfect Information, Irrationality, and Occasional Attempts at Altruism. (Forthcoming 2015)
This Paper continues the argument from "Leibniz," but whereas "Leibniz" demonstrates the fallacious logic, mathematical errors, and inaccurate predictions of Posner's Economic Analysis of Law and the non-disprovable nature of Sunstein's A Behavioral Approach to Law and Economics, this Paper attempts to offer a model which both incorporates (1) variant levels of information, rationality, morality, and importance of self-image as perceived by others in both individuals and populations and (2) which is both empirically-based and susceptible to being disproved or improved through experimentation and peer review.
An Adapted Behavioral Economic Approach to the Deterrence of Mass-Atrocity. (Forthcoming 2016)
This Paper will apply the model described in Adapting Behavioral Law and Economic Approaches to a World of Imperfect Information, Irrationality, and Occasional Attempts at Altruism to the deterrence of mass atrocity and will analyze differing approaches to transitional justice and evaluate each to determine an optimal, yet pragmatic, approach to the deterrence of man's worst crimes against man.
