Land reforms are laws that are intended, and likely, to cut poverty by raising the poor?s share of land rights. That raises questions about property rights as old as moral philosophy, and issues of efficiency and fairness that dominate policy from Bolivia to Nepal. Classic reforms directly transfer land from rich to poor. However, much else has been... more...
