Georgism and Justice in the Twenty-First Century: Beyond Land Value Taxation

Join via Zoom

Meeting ID: M890 7095 6150; Passcode: 042170

Admission Free – voluntary donations via website welcome

The work of Henry George is commonly associated with the idea of land value taxation – the ‘single tax’ on the rental value of land that would replace the unjust and inefficient taxation of production and employment. However, George was concerned not just with land rent and the land monopoly, but with monopolies and rents of all kinds, as well as wider themes concerning the ethical foundation of the economy and its place within society.

At this year’s event there will be a broad focus on the place of the economy in society, and on economic rents arising in a variety of sectors of the economy, including banking and finance, the utilities, and intellectual property.

Do join us as we explore the reasons why the ideas expressed by George in the late nineteenth century are more relevant than ever in the era of rising inflation, falling living standards, economic instability, and rapidly deteriorating environment in which we find ourselves.
