The interpretive critique is primarily focused on economics as a system for understanding markets as a dynamic process of human interactions and exchange. It does not equate economics with the market but instead understands economics as one of several ways of interpreting the market. The interpretive critique is not about the formal doctrines, theorems, and assumptions that define any of the various approaches to an economic analysis of law. It is focused on the way that each or any of these approaches may be used to influence and transform legal meaning when used to analyze legal relationships.
