APPEAL welcomes members to join us in advancing law and political economy through research, education and policy.  Our interests and goals include:

  • Understanding the economy as a system interconnected with law and government
  • Questioning policies and theories that assume self-regulating or optimizing markets
  • Expanding the possibilities for policies responding to inequality, insecurity, and environmental destruction
