Abstract

The neo-classical contractual paradigm that dominates Brazilian law is increasingly demonstrating its deficiencies and limitations in describing and regulating relational or long-term contracts, which are becoming more frequent in post-fordist production. The paper discusses the elements for a relational contract theory which is able to provide a new description and new normative principles to contract law, such as the principles of solidarity, cooperation, participation and balance. Theses principles are examined through the example of private pension fund contracts.
