Allen Linden loves torts. Justice Linden also cherishes strong communities whose members care for each other. As someone who has studied and worked both in Canada and the United States, Professor Linden knows the benefits that can be gained by being less provincial and opening yourself up to the experience of other legal systems. Not only might you realize how to improve yours, but also you might be able to offer insights to others. As part of this symposium honoring Allen Linden, my contribution acknowledges all three of these values by looking at the monetary benefits provided by tort law and other compensation systems in the United States and elsewhere.
