Property is Monopoly

Research papers

  • Depreciating Licenses by E. Glen Weyl and Anthony Lee Zhang. This paper provides the original proposal and analysis on which the COST was based.
  • Property is Only Another Name for Monopoly by Eric A. Posner and E. Glen Weyl. This paper was the basis of chapter 1 of the book but treats legal and implementation issues in much greater detail.
  • Land Assembly Without Eminent Domain by Mark DeSantis, Matthew W. Carter and Abel M. Winn. This is the first experimental test in the laboratory of a COST and suggests it greatly improves the efficiency of allocation of property.
