Problem

Unequal property rights

Other Names:
Denial of equal property rights because of discrimination
Prejudicial treatment in relation to ownership
Incidence:

Property rights are so important because their actual nature determines resource allocation in a world of conflicting user interests.

Claim:

Little economic activity would occur in the absence of rights, or powers, to consume, obtain income from, and transfer assets. The level of economic development of a region will therefore depend on its system of property rights.
