Robert Hockett, Professor at Cornell Law School, Joins Bruce Norris on the Real Estate Radio Show #287
This week Bruce Norris is joined once again by Robert Hockett. Robert teaches financial and business law subjects at Cornell Law School, where his research and writing focuses on the legal and institutional prerequisites to a just and prosperous economic order. He is also a fellow at the Century Foundation, a commissioned offer for the New America Foundation and consultant to a number of financial institutions, regulators, and legislators. Prior to entering legal academia, he worked at the International Monetary Fund and served as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Deanell Reece Tacha, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit. He was educated at the University of Kansas, Oxford University, where he studied as a Rhodes scholar, and at Yale University. Robert also authored a memorandum entitled It Takes a Village Municipal Condemnation Proceedings and Public/Private Partnerships for Mortgage Loan Modification Value Preservation and Economic Recovery. Bruce and Robert primarily discuss eminent domain as well as the Hawaii Metcalf case from 1984, the Kilo case in the city of New London, the collective action problem Robert discusses in his memorandum, the specific type of loan eminent domain is being used on, and much more on this week's real estate radio show and podcast.
