More on Kelo, Eminent Domain, Court Construction

William J. Watkins Jr. has a great piece on one particularly troubling aspect of the Kelo decision. He writes,"Property owners beware. If an owner does not make maximum productive use of his property, government is now empowered to transfer the property to another person. This is the essence of the Supreme Court’s ruling last week...."

N. Stephan Kinsella has a compelling article that discusses issues of the 14th Amendment and federalism, and argues that it would have been bad in the long run for liberty for the Supremes to overturn local eminent domain measures.

Very interesting stuff. I will comment on this soon.
