Washington Law Review


The purpose of this comment is to explore some of the population problems in modern America. It is written from a lawyer's perspective, in search of pragmatic solutions to real problems. Accordingly, it concentrates on the effects which various laws and policies have on population distribution with a view toward isolating those factors which can be manipulated by government to distribute population in a more rational and desirable manner. Even if no affirmative distribution program is adopted, an increased awareness of the population effects of existing federal activities will serve to eliminate future policy choices which might exacerbate current distribution-related problems.
