  • THE NEW ECONOMICS OF THE BUSINESS CYCLE
    Session 1
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2019.03.11

    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
    Location: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016
    Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
    Dates: Mondays: 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, 4/1

  • PROGRESS AND POVERTY
    Session 4
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm

    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.

    Instructor: Marty Rowland, Ibrahima Drame, Ron Rubin, Michael Bucher
    Location: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016
    Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

    Land, Wealth, Women, Power and Taxes

    Women, Land, Wealth Inequality and Taxes will address the power of public finance to help or to hurt the status and well-being of women worldwide. The three speakers (from Honduras, Costa Rica and the US) are ECOSOC UN NGO officers for an international organization whose major focus is land and taxation.

    They will address the impact of land value-based taxes on women’s rights to land, clean air and water, housing and health versus destructive land use, poverty and wealth inequality.

    You will learn about a practical public finance approach that is a key policy of UN HABITAT’s New Urban Agenda endorsed by consensus of the UN General Assembly. This policy is based on the principles of both freedom and fairness and is “out of the box” of left versus right.
