Brazil and Germany: a behavioral law and economics approach to standard form contracts

Maiara Giorgi, Haide Maria Hupffer


Consumer relations are strongly influenced by the market economy, which can be seen as a reflection of the globalization faced by contemporary society. Standard form contracts appear as a demand of this economic and globalized world, since they can provide greater uniformity, rapidity, efficiency and dynamism to contractual relations.
