This chapter explains the five general economic torts. These are inducing breach of contract, causing loss by unlawful means, lawful means conspiracy, unlawful means conspiracy, and intimidation. The chapter notes that what binds these torts together is their focus on the element of intention and causation of loss, as well as the tendency of the courts to apply them in business and other financial settings. Otherwise, the torts are quite disparate in their operation.
