  • THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF SOCIAL PROBLEMS
    Session 4
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2018.11.01

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    Based on Henry George’s “fighting book”; Social Problems, this five session course will present a critical analysis of the causes, manifestations as well as the consequence  of income disparity  in society. We will discuss and evaluate various theories and policy responses advocated by mainstream economics before presenting a Georgist paradigm that rewards the efforts of the entrepreneur without exploiting laboring masses.

    This course will trace the root causes of social problems back to the natural laws that must govern the distribution of wealth in society.

    Instructor: Dr. Ibrahima Drame
    Location: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016
    Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
    Dates: Thursdays: 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1

  • PROGRESS AND POVERTY
    Session 6
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2018.11.14

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

     

    Through an intense and thorough analysis of George’s seminal work, Progress & Poverty, this course will take aim at the fundamental problem of wealth distribution and show that the only viable alternative to “bad capitalism” is not socialism but “true capitalism”; where socially created wealth is put to the service of the community rather than privatized. The course will lay out George’s simple but radical remedy, so that we may avoid the insanity of trying the same solutions and expect different results.

    The purpose of this 5-session course is to offer a basic introduction to political economy in the tradition of Henry George as presented in his book Progress and Poverty.

    We will introduce the key concepts, axioms and fundamental laws of the discipline and use this understanding to analyze and explain economic issues in the real world. We will also examine the causes of poverty and discuss George’s unique approach to the problem. Additional issues such as the alternating cycles of boom and bust that are so characteristic of capitalist economies will be also discussed.
