This paper is a critique of the privatization of the `Public Purpose Rule in the compulsory acquisition of land in Australia and United States. Traditionally the domain of government for the provision of public infrastructure in serving the needs of the community, `public purpose provisions in compulsory acquisition legislation remain elusive and non-descript. In the absence of explicit definitions, this determination has been left to the courts.
