Dillon) can be con-sidered to be responsible for the popularity of two legalprinciples related to a laissez faire interpretation of theConstitution that were valuable to industrialists of theera: the liberty of contract principle as a limitation onpolice power of the states, and the public purposelimitation on state and federal tax power.
