Growth has become a problem, and the limiting of growth has become popular. Significant restraints are being applied to land development, resource use, and our whole economic process. We shall have to develop new incentives and motives for attracting capital if we are to continue high levels of economic activity. The differences in levels of concern for land use are pointed out in this paper. Instead of all the focus being on the Federal Government, it is spread throughout state and local governments. This is done through the advent of revenue-sharing, block grants, etc. The restraints placed on these funds assure a certain amount of national control over how and for what the funds will be used.
