Property Is Just A Natural Resource Licence?

Recommended Posts

I am fed up with the way land ownership is cornered by the few.

I read this (at http://libertarianalliance.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/rent-controls-or-landlord-subsidies/): "Ownership of well-located land is akin to a licence to use a natural resource likely to confer windfall profits on the owners". Is property ownership just the same as a licence to exploit North Sea oil?

I'm starting to think Reginald Salisbury (name??? - I mean Sam Cam's dad if the name is wrong) - should be paying us to put wind farms on his land, and not the other way round...

Yes of course it is. What else could it possibly be?
