De-Fanging Rluipa: Religion And The Politics Of Eminent Domain, Christopher Serkin, Nelson Tebbe Oct 2016

De-Fanging Rluipa: Religion And The Politics Of Eminent Domain, Christopher Serkin, Nelson Tebbe

Christopher Serkin

Should religious landowners enjoy special protection from eminent domain? A recent federal statute, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), compels courts to apply strict scrutiny to zoning and landmarking regulations that substantially burden religiously owned property. That provision has been controversial in itself, but today a new cutting-edge issue is emerging: whether the Act’s extraordinary protection should extend to condemnation as well. The matter has taken on added significance in the wake of Kelo, where the Supreme Court reaffirmed its expansive view of the eminent domain power. In this Article, we argue that RLUIPA should not ...


Existing Uses And The Limits Of Land Use Regulation, Christopher Serkin Oct 2016

Existing Uses And The Limits Of Land Use Regulation, Christopher Serkin

Christopher Serkin

This Article identifies the various ways in which property law provides special protection for existing uses, explores the possible justifications for this protection, and argues that none of them support the strong protection that existing uses currently enjoy. Various land use doctrines, from zoning, to the vested rights doctrine, to amortization rules for prior non-conforming uses, all assume that the government cannot eliminate existing uses without paying compensation. The Article asks whether this result is compelled either by constitutional rules or by normative considerations. Neither the Takings Clause nor the Due Process Clause requires this level of protection for existing ...


The Idea Of Police In China, Kam Wong Sep 2015

The Idea Of Police In China, Kam Wong

Kam C. Wong

Specialized and professionalized police came to China by way of Japan, circ 1889. Western policing, in the guise of bureaucratic, scientific, technocratic and legalistic policing began to spread and take roots in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) after 1979. Given China’s lack of exposure to Western policing it is interesting and useful to investigate into how China comes to police herself through the ages; more pointedly, whether China has her own indigenous conception (or image, or sense) of police? In the words of Deng, what does policing “with Chinese characteristics” looks like, conceptually, organizationally and operationally?


Policing With Chinese Characteristics, Kam Wong Sep 2015

Policing With Chinese Characteristics, Kam Wong

Kam C. Wong

A review of (occidental) literature on Chinese social control-policing shows that there is an imbalance in research output. There is a lot of research into social control system in imperial China; its historical roots, philosophical foundation, structural framework, and functional process. However, there are very little raw data and research output on how Chinese police worked in the past or PRC public security functions at present.

This book is the only book that provide for a systematic and comprehensive treatment on various aspects of China policing, including: idea (Chapter 2), origin (Chapter 3), history (Chapter 4), education (Chapter 5), culture ...


Systemic Classism, Systemic Racism: Are Social And Racial Justice Achievable In The United States?, Thomas Kleven Jul 2015

Systemic Classism, Systemic Racism: Are Social And Racial Justice Achievable In The United States?, Thomas Kleven

Thomas Kleven

This paper argues that the United States is systemically a highly classist and racist society, that systemic classism and racism are intimately interrelated phenomena, and that reforming this situation requires a mass movement of working class people of all ethnicities for social and racial justice for all. Section II discusses aspects of American society infected by systemic classism and racism. The focus is on the economic system, the local governmental structure, and the political process – central and interrelated features of society’s class and racial hierarchies. The thesis is that these institutions are structured and operate so as to systematically ...

Alquiler Coches

This review intends to determine the extent to which a serious mental illness (SMI) interferes with reproductive health (RH). The primary focus is the question of whether or not, women with SMI are at high risk for sexually transmitted infections, female cancer, unwanted pregnancies, and sexual dysfunction. Eighty-four original studies published 1971–2008 are identified through database, journal and Internet searches (PUBMED, ACOG, OMNI), and categorized by their focus and sampling techniques. RH related outcomes and their determinants (awareness, stigma, others) are considered as measurable outcomes. Women with SMI have more lifetime sex partners, low contraceptive usage, higher rates of ...

An Experimental Inquiry Into The Social Construction Of Property, Vernon Smith, Bart Wilson, Erik Kimbrough Aug 2014

An Experimental Inquiry Into The Social Construction Of Property, Vernon Smith, Bart Wilson, Erik Kimbrough

Bart J Wilson

We design a laboratory experiment to explore whether and how property rights emerge in a specialization and exchange environment where theft is costless. Additional treatments examine various enforcement mechanisms to determine whether private actions can produce agreement to respect property. We find that although an absence of exogenous enforcement does not hamper property’s emergence in all cases, private enforcement instruments tend to worsen outcomes. Property emerges when subjects form groups, understand potential gains from trade, convince group members that all benefit by avoiding theft, and display credible commitment to cooperation in their actions. In other words, as Hume argued ...


Contra Private Fairness, Bart Wilson Aug 2014

Contra Private Fairness, Bart Wilson

Bart J Wilson

This paper attempts to clarify our understanding of the everyday use of fair as we apply it to economic behavior. I first examine the decomposition of fair into its semantic primitives and discuss implications of recent research which indicates that the word is untranslatable into any other language, i.e., the concept of fair is distinctly Anglo. I also make a Wittgensteinian appeal to context and human sociality as an indispensable tether for what we mean by a fair experience and what we epistemologically know about fairness. The principal implication of this is that rules that guide fair behavior are ...

The Need For Better Analysis Of High Capacity Services, George Ford, Lawrence Spiwak Jun 2014

The Need For Better Analysis Of High Capacity Services, George Ford, Lawrence Spiwak

Lawrence J Spiwak

In 1999, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) began to grant incumbent local exchange carriers (“LECs”) pricing flexibility on special access services in some Metropolitan Statistical Areas (“MSAs”) when specific evidence of competitive alternatives is present. The propriety of that deregulatory move by the FCC has been criticized by the purchasers of such services ever since. Proponents of special access price regulation rely on three central arguments to support a retreat to strict price regulation: (1) the market(s) for special access and similar services is unduly concentrated; (2) rates of return on special access services, computed using FCC ARMIS data ...


Wobbling Back To The Fire: Economic Efficiency And The Creation Of A Retail Market For Set-Top Boxes, T. Randolph Beard, George Ford, Lawrence Spiwak, Michael Stern Jun 2014

Wobbling Back To The Fire: Economic Efficiency And The Creation Of A Retail Market For Set-Top Boxes, T. Randolph Beard, George Ford, Lawrence Spiwak, Michael Stern

Lawrence J Spiwak

Under Section 629 of the Communications Act, Congress directed the FCC to adopt regulations to promote a retail market for set-top boxes. The Commission’s first attempt was the ill-fated CableCard experiment, which—by the Commission’s own admission—was a dismal failure. In response, the Commission is now contemplating an aggressive new “AllVid” regime, whereby the agency would mandate multichannel video program distributors (“MVPDs”) to provide an adapter to serve as a “common interface for connection to televisions, DVRs, and other smart video devices.” Because the FCC is again proceeding without any formal economic analysis of the nature of ...

Corporate Social And Environmental Disclosure In Emerging Securties Markets, Li-Wen Lin Nov 2013

Corporate Social And Environmental Disclosure In Emerging Securties Markets, Li-Wen Lin

Li-Wen Lin

Most of the existing legal scholarship on corporate social and environmental disclosure focuses on developed markets. Little attention has been paid to emerging markets. The purpose of this Article is to fill this void. Corporate social and environmental disclosure is now growing in many emerging markets and relevant regulatory measures are taking shape in some emerging markets. This Article examines the regulatory development in emerging markets including South Africa, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, and Thailand and compares the regulatory patterns in these markets. It also considers the challenges of different regulatory approaches in the institutional environments of emerging markets and gives ...


Legal Transplants Through Private Contracting: Codes Of Vendor Conduct In Global Supply Chains As An Example, Li-Wen Lin Nov 2013

Legal Transplants Through Private Contracting: Codes Of Vendor Conduct In Global Supply Chains As An Example, Li-Wen Lin

Li-Wen Lin

The legal transplant literature typically focuses on legal transplants through governmental channels (e.g., legislative or judiciary processes). This article however directs attention to a generally ignored phenomenon: legal transplants through private contracting in the globalization age. Private actors have transplanted a variety of private and public laws across jurisdictions through contracting for over a decade. This article argues that codes of vendor conduct in global supply chains are a great example for this type of legal transplantation. Given that vendor codes in global supply chains can be interpreted as legal transplants through private contracting, this article further examines the ...
