Richard Epstein on Property Rights

In this week's Econtalk, Richard Epstein, of the University of Chicago and Stanford's Hoover Institution, makes the case that many current zoning restrictions are essentially "takings" and property owners should receive compensation for the last value of their land. He also discusses with the host Russ Roberts the Kelo case and the political economy of the regulation of land.
