Preserving the 'sanctity' of free markets
By Raymond J. Keating
In a column about the activities and views of the Foundation for Economic Education, Keating mentions the November edition of the group's publication, The Freeman, which was devoted to the issue of eminent domain. One of the two local issues cited was Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards:
The November issue included several articles describing the ills of government abuse of eminent domain. That's certainly a hot-button topic locally, with abuses ranging from the potential taking of property for a sports team owner in Brooklyn (Bruce Ratner and the NBA's Nets) to actually doing so in the name of preserving farmland in Brookhaven.
NoLandGrab: We link Keating's column to point out that Bruce Ratner's in fast becoming the posterchild of eminent domain abuse.
