The Attrition of Urban Real-Property Rights
By Edwin S. Mills
This article appeared in the Fall 2007 issue of The Independent Review


Urban land-use controls in the United States are most stringent on the east and west coasts, least stringent in the South, and mostly moderate in the Midwest. The case of Chicago illustrates the virtually dictatorial power that local governments now exercise in a country that once led the world in the protection of private-property rights.
