  • ECONOMIC SCIENCE
    Session 2
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2019.02.04

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    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

    Instructor: Steven Sklar
    Location: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
    Dates: Mondays: 1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, 2/25

  • PROGRESS AND POVERTY
    Session 1
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2019.02.05

    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
    Dates: 2/5, 2/12, 2/26, 3/12, 4/9, 4/16

  • LAND VALUE CAPTURE: THEORY AND PRACTICE
    Session 4
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2019.02.06

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    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.

    Innovation – How Technology can Reconcile Progress and Economic Justice

    Innovation is the lifeblood of human progress and a key driver of economic growth. It is as the saying goes, the “calling card of the future”. But how does innovation relate to public policy, R&D, and wealth disparity? In this interactive seminar, James Cusick defines and explores the nature of innovation especially as it relates to Economic outcomes such as wealth and income distribution with reference to the works of Henry George and Joseph Schumpeter.

    James Cusick is an IT leader with over 30 years of experience in Software Engineering, Information Security, IT Operations, Process Engineering, and Project Management. He is currently Director of IT Service Management Process with a global information services firm.

    Previously James held leadership roles with Dell Services, Lucent Bell Laboratories, and AT&T Laboratories. James was also an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University and has published widely in his fields of interest including two recent books on Software Engineering and over 75 articles.

    James holds degrees from the University of California and Columbia University. He also pursued History of Science research at NYU’s Polytechnic Institute and is currently exploring concepts in Political Economy at the Henry George School of Social Science.
