Abstract:     
Public-Private Partnerships are viewed quite positively. In the context of working with local government for economic development, the interests and concerns of the private appear to dominate the development decision-making. This Essay explores eminent domain decisions and community benefits agreements for standards for measuring the efficacy of these partnerships. It suggests ways in which we can begin to think about public accountability and public benefits to be derived from these partnerships.
