A new article worth your time by economist William Wade, "Theory and Misuse of Just Compensation for Income-Producing Property in Federal Courts: A View From Above the Forest," 46 Tex. Envtl L. J. 139 (2016).
Bill is familiar to regular readers, as he has been a frequent guest poster, and a prolific author. This article is his latest, and focuses on how compensation should be calculated in regulatory takings cases, and contrasts how lawyers view economic losses, and how economists view the same thing (not necessarily the same way).
