It's worth paying attention to how much genuine land-theft is going on in the developing world, when governments forcably reassign land to corporations who may, (in theory) be obliged to pay compensation (but often don't)
Now, I'm not wholly against government reassigning land-use, eg. compare and contrast :
- Land Reform in Zimbabwe : http://blahsploitation.blogspot.com/search?q=zimbabwe
But obviously I'm against this. So what's the difference?
Note : I suppose that this isn't the kind of FreeMarket that a Libertarian may have in the back of his (or her) mind when welcoming the incorporation of the developing world into the globalized agribusiness. But then they should certainly pay attention to this kind of thing.
