It gets rid of the constraint of the hypothesis of traditional contract law on complete contracts, encourages the self-fulfillment of incomplete contract from the logic starting point of incomplete contract, highlights the incentive function of the remedy for breach of contract and emphasizes that the function of contract law is aimed to improve transaction efficiency and optimize resource allocation.
