Alexander Stack analyzes international patent law institutions and harmonization from a global welfarist, rationalist perspective. Grounding his analysis in innovation theory and an examination of patent law and prosecution, the author employs tools from new institutional economics to explore when cooperation is welfare-enhancing and the design implications for international institutions. This chapter introduces relevant aspects of patent law and its economic analysis, treating a country and its patent laws as a closed system or autarky

This book provides a subtle, insightful, and original analysis of the evolution of institutional arrangements for the international harmonization of patent laws that will be of immense value to scholars and practitioners involved in international harmonization efforts in intellectual property and cognate areas of commercial law. It will surely quickly become accepted as the seminal reference work in these fields. - From the foreword by Michael Trebilcock, University of Toronto, Canada.
