Eminent Domain Harms Poor Residents
I’ve been remiss in pointing out this article at The American by our former editor, Tim Lee, about how eminent domain abuse in Missouri harms the very poor residents that officials are ostensibly trying to help. The article serves as a brief introduction to some of the material in his recent study, "The Specter of Condemnation: The Case Against Eminent Domain for Private Profit in Missouri."
Another copy of the article also turned up a couple of days ago at The Cato Institute, where Tim is now an adjunct scholar. Be sure to read the article, then read the study, and learn how your neighborhood may be vulnerable to the bulldozers as well.
