Address: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016


Since the end of World War II the United States has experienced tremendous technological and scientific progress while simultaneously experiencing increasing economic inequality. Major social and economic changes, shifting political alliances, weak political leadership, compromised and biased public discourse combine to create a fertile ground ready for fresh ideas and ways of thinking. There can be shared prosperity.

Today Yannis Tziligakis and Marty Rowland map out the political discourse that must begin if we all are to enjoy a future filled with progress and prospertiy.

Marty Rowland studied economics under Daniel W. Bromley, emeritus professor of applied economics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and used the theories of Elinor Ostrom (2010 Nobel Prize Economist) on common pool resource management systems.

Yannis Tziligakis is an independent researcher and educator, and a long-time advocate for the philosophy of Henry George.

Location: Henry George School of Social Science, 149 East 38th Street (Between Lexington & 3rd Avenue) New York, NY 10016
Time: 2:30pm to 6:00pm
Date: Saturday, February 17, 2018

    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
