This paper on the economic analysis of tort law examines the rules of civil action especially those of the accident law regarding their suitability for optimum exploitation of meagre economic resources. The author first deals with a one-sided cause of damage only the culprit influences the extent of damage. Subsequently, Schafer deals with mutual damage causing-not on the finally resulting extent of damage. Lastly, a few more observations are made on the efficiency of the tort law within the scope of the commercial relationship. (Editor’s abstract.)
