Progress to Poverty: Land and Rents-Free

Event detail
Add to my calendar

On the 140th anniversary of Henry George's Progress and Poverty, his land tax and radical reform of land use are worth a critical re-examination. Geographers Francesca Manning and Richard Walker, along with Ted Gwartney of the California chapter of Common Ground USA, untangle what George proposed, what happened as a result of his ideas, and what the future holds. This program is in conjunction with the San Francisco Public Library exhibit, Who Owns the Earth? Henry George's Progress and Poverty 140 Years Later.
