    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.
