Given this conclusion, Fuller suggested that the expectation interest presents a lesser claim in justice to judicial intervention than do the restitution and reliance interests. ” In passing from compensation for losses to the satisfaction of expectations disappointed by breach, the law ceases to act restoratively and adopts a more active role.

If we examine Fuller’s difficulty with the expectation interest, we see that, necessarily, it rests on the following implicit premise: a promise, even if accepted, does not give the promisee anything; it is only if and when a promise is actually performed that the promisee acquires something.
