No law professor has greater analytic power and intellectual range than Frank Michelman has. In focusing on the voting-rights section of my article, he indeed identifies an analytic error. A national rule that commands all municipalities to confer voting rights in a particular way prevents them from engaging in Tieboutstyle competition along that particular dimension. When municipal competition is thus restrained, the Tiebout literature has nothing to say about whether the value of residents' voting rights would be reflected in land values. I thus stand corrected by Michelman's discussion headed "[t]hird problem."
