“The land question” is seldom a question. Typically it is a slew of dogmas and myths as tenacious as they are erroneous. Virtually every supposed fact about land in South Africa is not just wrong, but so far off the mark as to make the adoption of sound policies virtually impossible.

The potential benefit of unlocking the economic value of land, particularly for the poor, is beyond our imagination, writes Barun Mitra in the Mint

Look at the ceiling and conjure up a figure, apply it to cap land transaction. SEZs get that time-tested treatment. SEZs being hobbled by land ceiling restrictions, evidence of the continued socialist control mindset, even while attempting to reform Indian economy, writes Bibek Debroy in Indian Express.
