This chapter, chapter 14, deals with the possible impact of the public purpose factor in determining compensation for expropriation, where land is expropriated for land reform purposes. The argument is that the constitutional commitment to land reform motivates an expectation on an owner to accept a lower price than where property in expropriated for non-land reform public purposes.
