Justifications for Property Law

One justification for the protection of property  law is that it furnishes incentives to work, a common example being that people would not grow crops unless they could keep the product of their labor. Similarly, property rights provide incentives to maintain and improve durable things repair buildings, to fertilize and irrigate land, to conserve renewable resource stocks.Another justification for property rights is that, were they absent, individuals would spend time and effort trying to take things from each other and protecting things in their possession, and they would often find themselves involved in conflict.
