Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal


David Lander


Professor Lander responds to Professor Martin’s article by pointing out that the issue may not be so black and white. This Article lays out the factors that policymakers should consider when they make consumer bankruptcy policy and discussed the forces on the various sides of the debate on that issue. Lander argues that our current stingy bankruptcy relief system is killing the economy and supports Professor Martin’s proposal to see bankruptcy as a key for reducing inequality.
