Comprehensive Canadian Treatise on Economic Loss
Economic loss is often inadequately dealt with in the larger context of the law of torts. This book offers an in-depth look at how the law protects economic interests from being injured through the acts of others. Its scope includes both intentionally and unintentionally caused economic loss.
The book first provides an overview of the concepts and theories of economic torts and the parameters of the current law. It then goes on to look at economic loss from all possible causes of action, such as: negligent misstatement, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of confidence, inducing breach of contract, causing economic loss by unlawful means, conspiracy, deliberate misrepresentation (injurious falsehood and deceit), passing-off, negligence and other forms of civil liability.
Features and Benefits
- Comprehensive treatment of the law – provides a clear understanding of this area of the law, which has previously received limited attention
- In-depth analysis and formatted chapter structure – topics are thoroughly covered, with chapters that share an identical structure: first examining the elements of the cause of action or tort; then grounds of justification; defences and remedies; and finally, any statutory framework
- A separate chapter discusses remedies for all the torts in an integrated way
- Navigating foreign jurisprudence – though the focus of this book is on Canadian law, authorities from UK, Australia and New Zealand are referred to frequently
- Written in plain language – this complex topic can be easily referenced by non-legal professionals
