Economics for Progressives

Progressives seek greater economic equality, universal medical care, affordable housing, and free education but targeting these problems via direct legislation seems to be their preferred policy tool. Are there any unintended consequences to this approach? What other remedies are there to consider? Join us as Professor Fred Foldvary of San Jose University leads our interesting and timely interactive seminar.

Henry George School of Social Science is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Time: Jul 31, 2019 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

    In his two most recent HGSSS talks, Dr. Perry described current Federal Reserve policies as unprecedented but apparently required by competing political dynamics which make it impossible for Congress either to raise taxes or to cut spending. This latest talk presents a deep analysis of the theories, the history, and the politics of Federal taxation and spending, and offers specifics for the implementation of a Georgist alternative to resolve the current fiscal impasse.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.

    Instructor: Dr. W. E. Perry
