This article reviews some of the major cases of twentieth century land use law. The author points out that even if an economic analysis is applied to Dolan v. City of Tigard, Dolan was in a better economic position with the required exactions and therefore there was really no taking. In addition, the author contends that the responsibility for the burden of increased public improvement should rest with those who are in fact creating the need.
