There’s a growth-by-accretion of new property rights, largely pushed by an unjust enrichment principles. Such a principle is itself without definable 1imits in an interrelated society. My task: looking at this trend from different vantage pts, other than that of pure desert, is the trend a good one. My view is that by and large it is not, but what we’ll discuss today falls far short of any such broad conclusion.
