Property Rights: Eminent Domain and Regulatory Takings Re-examined By Bruce L. Benson
2010 | 332 Pages | ISBN: 0230102476 , 0230102468 | PDF | 3 MB


In an effort to understand the reasons for and consequences of the political backlash to the U.S. Supreme Court decision, Kelo v. New London, this book brings together a diverse group of scholars and practitioners who explore the uses and abuses of eminent domain and regulatory takings. Two authors propose additional constraints on eminent-domain powers, one chapter considers compensation determination theoretically, another describes compensation determination in practice, three authors explore the politics of takings including post-Kelo legislation, four chapters examine unintended consequences of takings, and the concluding chapter explains the inherent political instability and economic inefficiency resulting from land-use regulation.
