    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.

  • Money: Searching for its Source and the Case for Sovereign Money
    Seminar
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2018.03.12

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

     

     

    The financial crisis of 2007-2008 shone a spotlight on the structural problems with our current financial system at the root of which lies our system of money and banking.

    It is a misconception that our money is created by government; it creates only a small fraction of the money supply in circulation.

    A state which had full control of its money supply would:

    (1) determine the currency unit

    (2) issue the currency in circulation

    (3) benefit from the difference between the cost of production and the face value of money (seigniorage).

    Proponents of full state control of the monetary system often refer to this as “sovereign money.”

    In this two-week, upper-level, interactive seminar led by Allen Smith, participants will take a closer look at the components of a sovereign monetary system, and contrast those components to the current reality. Participants will consider the case for sovereign money, the economic problems it might address and the barriers to implementation. Highlights of sovereign money reform initiatives that have occurred in various countries will be presented.

    Location: Henry George School of Social Science, 149 East 38th Street (Between Lexington & 3rd Avenue) New York, NY 10016
    Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm

    Automation and Jobs: Why It’s Really Different This Time

    Technological change has always been a defining feature of advanced capitalist economies. However, the speed, scale and scope at which automation and artificial intelligence are evolving today and the extent to which they could disrupt labor markets could be unprecedented.

    In this interactive seminar, Dr. Robin Gaster explains why this time is different, and why the future will not be like the past.

    Dr. Gaster is the President of Incumetrics, a Washington, D.C.-based economic and technology consulting firm whose clients have included the U.S. National Research Council, the U.S. Census Bureau, the European Commission, and the Brookings Institution.
