    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    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.

    Rents, Public Policy, Economic Justice -Revisiting Henry George’s Legacy

    The year 2018 may be the year of Henry George – question is, will the Henry George School of Social Science (HGSSS) show up? We say, yes we will! Attendees to this conference will learn about: Georgist movement founding; early successes and failures in the 1886-1924 era of U.S. history; contemporary practice and advocacy in the halls of power in the U.S. Northeast Corridor (Boston-D.C.); and the infrastructure push in China and the U.S. and ways it is financed. The panel will leave attendees with a radical progressive proposal, called Three’s a Charm, involving an aggressive land value capture program targeting vacant and underutilized land in NYC.

    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.
