This raises important concerns. First, what does it mean for an effect to “bear on” someone? This concept raises issues of asymmetric information, interpersonal comparison of utility, and commensurability. The core of this concept lies in preferences: how much are individuals’ (or, in our context, states’) preferences affected, positively or negatively? Efficiency is enhanced if those who are in a position to decide what to do feel fully the effects of their decisions. Second, and most importantly, it is not correct to limit evaluation of institutional alternatives to property rights, or entitlements.

For, at the core of domestic law is a set of individuals, determining how they may work together to achieve their individual preferences more effectively. The fact that they have built an impressive superstructure of institutions sometimes obscures the fact that this superstructure is built on a substructure of individual action. The same theoretical tools, and problems, seem to apply. Finally, as we consider the “market” among states for regulatory authority, or jurisdiction, which this work proposes as the central study of international law, we recognize that in this market, efficiency means the optimal effectiveness of regulation, where regulation is the expression of state preferences.

Even if a law is mandatory, the degree of state interest34 in applying the law to particular circumstances may be attenuated to the extent that its violation has adverse effects in other jurisdictions, and lacks adverse effects in the regulating jurisdiction. S. securities laws should not apply to a wholly foreign transaction. 35 This question asks whether there remains a true conflict in a fundamental sense, despite some attenuation of state concern due to the cross-border circumstances. 36 This is a true conflict.
