Chapter 16: Good faith and reasonable conduct will prevent many contract disputes.
Chapter 17: The flexible powers of a court should enable it to craft a just remedy for almost any breach of contract.
Chapter 25: Once again, the subject is trade-offs. You can accomplish more if other people do things for you. On the other hand, you also face liability for their actions. Being a manager means getting things done through other people; but other people make mistakes. In this chapter, we look at how agency relationships are created and then we look at liability issues. It is virtually impossible to run a business without using agents. But using an agent dramatically increases the risk of liability–in both contract and tort. Because of this increased risk, it is important to understand agency law. It affects virtually everyone at some point in his or her life.
