    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the theories and doctrines that constitute the main paradigms from which economists and policy makers approach the world. The course will cover the contribution of classical economists such as Adam Smith and his contemporaries which is today the theoretical reference point from which other theories have come to define themselves, either by opposing it (Marxian economics), by attempting to reform it (Georgism) or by re-adapting it (Neoclassical school).

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    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.

    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.

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    This course investigates the field of political economy with an eye to establishing the subject on a scientific foundation as expounded by Henry George’s in his last book, The Science of Political Economy. Among the topics to be covered are the nature of science and the role of natural law in it, the importance of clear definition, the nature of wealth, what money is and what it can and cannot do, and the vital role cooperation plays in the production of wealth. Popular objections to George’s thinking will be examined as we consider whether indeed that thinking achieves insight worthy of being called scientific

    Capitalism Made in Germany

    Germany’s unique form of capitalism is not well understood by many. This interactive seminar reveals how a distinctive national culture, history and stabilizing institutions deeply imprinted German capitalism. Co-determination in labor relations, dual apprenticeship vocational training, public banking, a social welfare safety net and German “Mittelstand;”altogether make Germany a world leader in exports, second only to China. Join us to discuss the secrets behind the “German model” and draw some important lessons that others could learn from.
