This reliable source explores traditional and emerging areas in consumer protection law. Federal and state law dealing with consumer transactions is covered, including caselaw and statutes. The volume begins with an overview of public (both FTC and CFPB) and private enforcement actions to regulate the marketplace. The remaining chapters track the legal aspects of consumer transactions in a roughly chronological fashion, starting with advertising and marketing, consumer privacy, credit reports and identity theft, and equal access to credit. The discussion continues with coverage of mandated disclosures as well as substantive protections for consumers under the federal credit laws, especially the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), including installment sales, credit cards and real estate related financing. Special issues relating to TILA enforcement, as well as a discussion of related federal statutes, and regulation of the cost of credit are also covered. Post-transaction issues such as raising claims and defenses against third party financers (Holder in Due Course), warranties, default and debt collection, are included. Last but not least, there is a chapter on the law affecting various forms of payment for consumer transactions, including credit and debit cards.

Regulation and Consumer Protection, 4e is intended to document the scope and coverage of regulation and consumer protection in the United States. To provide some coherence, the authors provide a conceptual framework that essentially combines the viewpoints of those who feel regulatory policies are determined by the social and economic environment and those who feel that bureaucracies are permitted the freedom to set policies without restriction. The text explains how the economic and technological environment, along with macropolitical forces, sets the general parameters for regulatory policy.

The problems provide students with the opportunity to apply statutes to realistic situations and ask them to consider the perspectives of consumers, businesses, and lawmakers.

The Privacy Nutshell briefly reviews the historical roots of privacy, and then examines each of these U.S. privacy statutes and regulations. Virtually all governments and businesses face privacy considerations as technology continues to evolve. Legal issues related to privacy are exploding on the U.S. legal scene. The EU has a long history of a strong regulatory privacy regime. The U. S., however, follows a sectoral approach to privacy, whereby Congress responds to each privacy "crisis" with a new statute and set of regulations. This sectoral approach has resulted in a unique series of privacy rules for different areas of society. The Privacy Nutshell is an excellent introductory guide to the legal privacy world.
