The Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code) is a mandatory obligation for all systems operating in Australia, and takes a comprehensive approach to disclosure, relationship laws and dispute issues. Expert author and leading practitioner Peter Buberis takes a critical view of this regulatory
framework, evaluating the threads that make up the Code that directs the franchising industry in Australia.
Including chapters on the areas of disclosure, good faith, and intellectual property, Buberis takes a comprehensive approach in exploring the Code's development through its consideration and enforcement by the Regulator and the courts. Looking at recent case law, the chapters indicate continuing
points of concern about the Code, and give cognisance to a recent Parliamentary review which may enhance its operation if adopted.
For professionals in the franchising industry, and anyone looking to understand more about the Code that governs Australia's franchises, this is a comprehensive guide that engages and analyses this key piece of legislature.
Currently there is no comprehensive account accessible to undergraduate students, graduate students, economic researchers who are not specialists in the area of agricultural policy, of the economic welfare effects of the 2014 Farm Bill, passed by the US Congress and signed into law by President
Barack Obama on February 7, 2014. This edited collection consists of ten essays, each on the major areas of US farm programs that describes and assesses the economic welfare impacts of the programs in those areas. The chapters involve new research, but also heavily focus on providing assessments
based on the current state of the art research. Each chapter is by distinguished scholars who are internationally recognized experts in the field.
