Analysis 63 (4):321–327 (2003)
In the July 2003 Analysis, Hillel Steiner and Jonathan Wolff propose a framework for “resolving disputed land claims between competing nations or ethnic groups.” The idea is that we should auction off the land, with the loser of the auction getting the money. While this might mean that the richer party will normally end up with the land, and this is normally not thought to be a good thing, if the auction is conducted as they specify “it will turn out that the other party ends up with something which, in the circumstances, it prefers to the land: lots of money.” I raise nine objections to this proposal.
