Property and Justice


Oxford University Press

This chapter considers some lessons learned as imaginary societies shift from non-property societies to property institutions. These concern scarcity, trespassory rules, and the dual functions of property institutions (privileged use and wealth allocation). It then discusses half property, mere property, full-blooded ownership, property-independent prohibitions, property-limitation rules, property-duty rules and property-privilege rules, expropriation rules, and appropriation rules.

Keywords:   property, scarcity, trespassory rules, privileged use, wealth allocation
