Here is my question. If they were to pass a constitutional amendment, what language could they use that was clearer than the language that was already in the constitution? If the court is going to determine that the word "use" in the term "public use" means any possible benefits include those from private parties using the lan, how can an amendment fix things? My guess that a new constitutional amendment will only "fix" things because it will show the court how upset people are.
Amazed how lucky I am that I have had jobs where I could just think about whatever I wanted to think about.
This summer I will be moving to the University of Maryland. Previously I held positions at the University of Chicago, Yale University, Stanford, UCLA, Wharton, and Rice and was the chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission during 1988 and 1989. I have published over 90 articles in academic journals. I received my Ph.D. in economics from UCLA in 1984.
