Chapter Summary

The fourth intellectual task is the prediction of future trends in decision. This is done by considering the conditioning factors that resulted in the past decision that allows one to predict the outcome of the societal problem under scrutiny. The societal problem could be a case before a court or an administrative tribunal or a problem that needs to be resolved by a legislative body. In predicting future trends in decision, the New Haven School incorporates research and relies on past decisions to resolve problems. Participants in the human rights and business debate waited with baited breath and tenuous hopes to see whether the United States (U.S.) Supreme Court would disconnect the Alien Tort Statute (ATS) from life support. It was envisioned and sincerely hoped for by those who favor mandatory regulations that the United Nations (UN) would support progress toward developing such regulations.
