Utility or usefulness, in addition to its inherently subjective slant, is a quality which changes with socio-political circumstances and with accidental and more or less arbitrary estimates of human needs. This line of reasoning is however highly problematic. Again, this is supposed to be a deferential standard. This led to irrigation ditches being dug in nice neat straight lines without regard to small scale topography, with the result that they failed to transport water, it led to wetland rice being planted on land that remained dry, dry land rice being planted on land that became submerged, and so on and so forth.

Law was to be conceived as a unilateral projection of will on the part of the sovereign, and lawyers became technicians of the dicta. Uncertainty about the law is one of the factors that selects which cases will be filed, go to trial, and be appealed. For economists, "efficiency" is a technical idea--with only a tangential connection to the use of "efficiency" in ordinary speech.
