Property Rights explores the uses and abuses of eminent domain and regulatory takings in four areas: proposed constraints on the use of eminent domain, compensation issues in theory and practice, eminent domain from a public choice perspective, and the spillover costs of takings. This comprehensive book brings together a diverse group of scholars and experts to explain the implications of this decision. Contributors include the attorney who represented Susette Kelo before the U.S. Supreme Court, the legal scholar who wrote Regulatory Takings, and experts on land value determination, land-use policy, environmental regulation, regulatory policy, entrepreneurial activities, and economic behavior.
