Land, Wealth, Women, Power and Taxes

Women, Land, Wealth Inequality and Taxes will address the power of public finance to help or to hurt the status and well-being of women worldwide. The three speakers (from Honduras, Costa Rica and the US) are ECOSOC UN NGO officers for an international organization whose major focus is land and taxation.

They will address the impact of land value-based taxes on women’s rights to land, clean air and water, housing and health versus destructive land use, poverty and wealth inequality.

You will learn about a practical public finance approach that is a key policy of UN HABITAT’s New Urban Agenda endorsed by consensus of the UN General Assembly. This policy is based on the principles of both freedom and fairness and is “out of the box” of left versus right.
