By Nature Equal: The Anatomy Of A Western Insight, Patrick Brennan, John Coons Dec 2015

By Nature Equal: The Anatomy Of A Western Insight, Patrick Brennan, John Coons

John Coons

The basic premise of this book, by two law professors, is that humans, in spite of their differences, share one essential characteristic: "the capacity of every rational person to advance in moral self-perfection." How this is achieved, the authors argue, is more dependent on the intention to do good for one's fellow human beings than on the actual results of any efforts to do so.

Getting Serious About Curtailing Deferral Of Us Tax On Foreign Source Income, Robert J. Peroni, J. Clifton Fleming Jr., Stephen E. Shay

Faculty Scholarship

When a U.S. person conducts business or investment activity abroad through a foreign corporation in a country that imposes only low rates of tax, the so-called deferral privilege allows the U.S. taxpayer to defer substantial amounts of U.S. tax at the cost of only a small foreign levy. Hence, the deferral privilege operates as a tax subsidy of sorts for U.S. persons with operations in low tax foreign countries and provides a major incentive for U.S. persons to shift their business operations and investments to foreign countries that impose little or no tax on the ...

Preserving Open Lands: Local Zoning And Financing Authority Work Together, John R. Nolon Dec 1999

Preserving Open Lands: Local Zoning And Financing Authority Work Together, John R. Nolon

Pace Law Faculty Publications

State governments vest great authority in local governments to decide how and where private development shall occur, and in the alternative, where to preserve open land. The New York state legislature recognizes the importance of protecting open lands, and as such, has created several laws to facilitate local municipal action. Several methods exist that municipal government may use to accomplish this goal and this article provides several examples. For instance, the New York Court of Appeals, in the case of Bonnie Briar Syndicate, Inc. v. Town of Mamaroneck, held that a local zoning ordinance, which rezoned a large area for ...
