Hylton on Necessity

Keith Hylton (Boston University) has posted to SSRN The Economics of Necessity.  The abstract provides:

The necessity doctrine aligns the private and the social incentive for a property possessor to take a defensive action that prevents an invasion of his property from occurring. The model described here is also applicable to self-help in contracts.
