    Public infrastructure has long played an instrumental role in the growth of our cities and largely accounts for the observed increase in land values. And yet, our funding mechanisms have failed to tap into this vast source of publicly created wealth, allowing it to be pocketed by private landlords. In this 5-session course, Dr. Marty Rowland traces the theory of Land Value Capture back to the work of Henry George and discusses its potential for driving the rebirth of our cities.

  • THE NEW ECONOMICS OF THE BUSINESS CYCLE

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    Upheavals in how the U.S. economy operates have transformed Americans from wealth creators to creative borrowers. This course looks at how abandoning the Gold Standard, a bulwark of the world economy since the Industrial Revolution, has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption. Will this revolutionary shift usher in a new era of growth or lead to yet another wave of cyclical depressions? What is the role of land in this process? This five-lesson course will highlight structural changes to the U.S. economy since the demise of the World War II-spawned financial order, also known as the Bretton Woods system.

    Instructor: Dr. Ibrahima Drame
