    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

    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.
