The act of a government squeezing a project by taxes, regulation, access, or changes in law.

Creeping Expropriation

The continual restriction of private property rights gradually over time by a government. Creeping expropriation involves legislation, regulation, and taxation, which together over time make it difficult for a person or business to own property. Creeping expropriation, where it exists, makes it increasingly difficult to conduct commerce.
