Sidway1 is among the most familiar. An uncle promises his fifteen-year-old
nephew that he will give him $5,000 on his twenty-first birthday if he promises in
return not to smoke, drink, or play cards or billiards for money until then. The legal
question the case presents is straightforward: If the nephew keeps his end of the
bargain, ...

formalist contract law would disappear. ... welfare constraints (e.g. factory safety
standards) for the benefit of those who, because of extreme need, are likely to

these conflicting [paradigms]."114 Any attempt at unification must involve a
synthesis of these two schools of contract theory. "[NJeither individualist nor
collectivist premises [can] succeed in unifying contract law."115 Each pole of the
contract spectrum — from unfettered freedom of contract to socialistic
communitarianism — contains the seeds of its own destruction. Unlimited
freedom of contract collapses into ...

I have received a contract offer from the Philadelphia club, but I believe I have the
right to consider offers from other clubs before making any decisions. I, therefore,
request that you make known to all Major League clubs my feelings in this matter,
and advise them of my availability for the 1970 season.2 In it, Flood had publicly
challenged the hegemony ofbaseball by requesting freedom through the
elimination of the reserve clause and a reversal of baseball's antitrust exemption.

Moore's allegations that the Halliburton company formerly headed by Vice-
President Cheney received contracts for rebuilding Iraq without competitive
bidding because Cheney was the U.S. vice-president during and after the war
are likewise misleading. According to press reports published in response to
such allegations, the facts are that Halliburton had what is known as a “
requirements contract” with the United States government before the War with
Iraq began, and at that time, ...

I think even now I probably function in relation to academics in a way that they
find diffi fi cult, because I'm an academic [on a non-academic fi contract]. (student
services manager, post-1992 institution 1, UK) There is also a cadre of staff with
doctorates who may not have academic contracts, but who have acquired
generic skills from research training programmes: One of the things that I've
learnt a lot and passed on to others now, is about explaining one's transferable

New Labour's promises of devolution, participation, empowerment and public
sector delivery contracts for voluntary organisations and social enterprises have
been ramped up with the Coalition's big society. The commissioning model of
government is a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' because it will lead to private monopoly,
commercialised services, with agendas dominated by the vested interests of
private contractors (Whitfield, 2011b). Big society is dependent on outsourcing
and is ...

American welfare state, cracks in the foundation of welfare state liberalism have

American welfare state was "adrift,"2 and that "rethinking social welfare" was in
order.3 These were contemporaneous with the attempt by the right to contract the
welfare state by ...
