The Reith Lectures - Niall Ferguson: The Rule of Law and Its Enemies:… - 3. The Landscape of the Law

Niall Ferguson asks if different systems of law are key to economic success. How far are the common law's claims to superiority over other systems credible?

The historian Niall Ferguson delivers a lecture at Gresham College in the heart of legal London, addressing the relationship between the nature of law and economic success. He examines the rule of law in comparative terms, asking how far the common law's claims to superiority over other systems are credible. Are we living through a time of creeping legal degeneration in the English-speaking world?
