Exclusionary Zoning and Growth Controls: A Comment on the APA's Endorsement of the Mount Laurel Doctrine

Publication Title

Washington University Journal of Urban and Contemporary Law


The basis for my argument is literature overlooked by the APA brief. These are articles and books published by economists and by lawyers and planners who have adopted economic analysis. This literature has dominated the intellectual terrain since the late 1970s, which may be why almost none of the APA's references to social science studies of zoning are from the 1980s.
